Fatmata's story

Fatmata is 48 years old and a widow. Her husband died during the civil war in Sierra Leone and she was left to bring up her three children and two adopted children. She sells palm oil, spices, plastic shoes and other items. Fatmata sells her goods in the villages and at the border of the Republic of Guinea. With her previous loans, she was able to purchase 60 gallons of palm oil a month. She would like to expand the stock of her spices and is therefore requesting a loan of $375 for this purpose.
