Working six days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 540,000 SLL every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL. Mariama requires a loan in order to buy one bale of brilliant materials to produce different types of gara cloth, including clothing, bedding, and curtains. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 280,000 SLL.
In the future, Mariama plans to open a big shop and to sponsor her children as they go through their education smoothly. Rises in transportation costs and inflation are her major business challenges. Competition is high, but she offers the best and latest fashion, giving her an edge over her competitors. She supplies customers in Freetown and Makeni Town, offering the latest patterns and designs to fit her customers' needs. She thanks you for your support.
