Mariama's story

This is 27-year-old Mariama from Calabatown, in the eastern area in Freetown. She is married with two children between the ages of two and five. Mariama also has one additional dependent living with her at home. For the past 12 years, she has been running a general store where she sells onions, tomatoes, milk, sugar, and Ovaltine. Mariama started her business to generate more income to send her child to school. She works seven days a week, 10 hours a day. This is her only source of income and her major business challenge is price inflation.

Mariama is requesting a loan to buy more onions, tomato paste, milk, sugar, and Ovaltine. The extra income from her loan will allow her to pay her monthly installment and educate her children. In the future, Mariama plans to open another branch in town. She appreciates your support.
