A loan of $825 helped to buy 35 five-gallon containers of palm oil at 100,000 SLL each.


Salamatu's story

This is 31-year-old Salamatu. She is married and has no children but has four additional dependents who live with her while going to school.


In 2006, Salamatu established her palm oil business to help her husband provide a livelihood for their dependents. Working seven days a week and twelve hours a day, she earns about 700,000 SLL every month.


As the high cost of palm oil is greatly reducing her profit margins, Salamatu would like a loan of 3,500,000 SLL in order to buy 35 five-gallon containers of palm oil at 100,000 SLL each. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 300,000 SLL.


In the future, Salamatu plans to build a bigger store where she could store larger quantities of palm oil. She thanks you for your support.
