Meet 40-year-old Adama who lives in Kissy, an eastern area in Freetown, Sierra Leone. She is married with two children, ages 10 and 25. She also takes care of two relatives at home. Adama established her general merchandise business in 2006. She began her business because she wanted to generate enough income to support her family and she says she has not encountered any business problems yet. Adama also receives income from her relatives overseas.
Adama is requesting a loan to buy more cement, bags of flour, and soft drinks. She hopes that the extra income from her loan will allow her to increase her business and support her family and dependents. In the future, Adama plans to expand her business and become a supplier. She thanks you for your support.
