Mariama's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 39-year-old Mariama from Krootown in the central area of Freetown. She is married and has one child who is three years old. Her husband works at a non-governmental organization (NGO). Mariama runs a general store business, selling merchandise like assorted drinks, snack foods, mayonnaise, butter, hair products and other groceries. She has been running this business for five years. She works at her business six days per week. Her other source of income comes from her husband. She describes her biggest business challenge as insufficient funds to improve her retail grocery store. Mariama has requested a loan of 6,000,000 SLL in order to buy more items to stock and sell in her general store. The extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her savings and educate her child. In the future, she plans to expand her business and become a wholesaler. She thanks you for your support!
