Hawa's story

Meet 50-year-old Hawa from Waterloo, a neighborhood in Freetown. She is a widow and has three children between the ages of 16 and 30. One of her children is currently attending school. In 2004, Hawa established her general merchandise business. She began her business because she wanted to have a permanent source of income to support her family. She works seven days per week and 10 hours a day and earns about Le 1,200,000 every month from this business. Hawa describes her major problems as inadequate electricity supply and rapid increase in transportation costs.

She would like a loan of Le 5,000,000 which she needs so she can buy different kinds of drinks and water packets for her business. Hawa hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profit to approximately Le 500,000. In the future, Hawa plans to open her business in other areas within her township. She thanks you for your support.
