Poreh's story

Poreh lives in the outskirts of Kabala town in Sierra Leone. Married with five children, she needs to work hard to make ends meet and also take care of the children. Because the children are still small, this thirty-year-old mother cannot travel out of the house to purchase her business items. Poreh is assisted by her mother and brother to purchase palm oil and spices from the villages. She sells the palm oil from her home. With her previous loans, she expanded her business and was able to purchase an additional 30 gallons of palm oil. She is requesting a $375 loan to purchase more spices and 20 gallons of palm oil. This will enable her to generate more income for the future of her children.
