Tenneh's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This Tenneh , 41, from Waterloo branch. She is married with six children between the ages of 5 and 16 and all of them are going to school. She started this business because she wants to take care of her family and herself.

Tenneh runs a retail table business and sells coal, wood and other assorted items to her customers around the community. Her other source of income is from her husband. She has been in this business for the past 6 years. Tenneh says her business challenge has been the effects of the covid 19.
