A loan of $700 helped to buy more garri to sell.


Yayah's story

44-year-old Yayah is married and has two children aged nineteen and sixteen. His dependent father also lives with him.


In 2001, Yayah began selling garri (cassava flakes) because he needed to alleviate his domestic difficulties. His business is the only source of livelihood for him and his family. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, he earns about 7,600,000 SLL every month. The rising cost of transportation is his major challenge, though, and competition is extremely high.


Yayah would like a loan of 3,000 SLL in order to buy more garri to sell. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly income by approximately 751,000 SLL.


In the future, Yayah plans to purchase and install a garri processing machine in his village and to give his children a quality education. He thanks you for your support.
