Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 32-year-old Issa from Grassfield, an eastern area in Freetown. He is a father of 1 daughter, aged 12 years. His daughter is currently attending school. Issa began this business because it had been his childhood dream to become a businessman.

Issa runs a business selling local food commodities. He sells palm oil, groundnuts, rice, cassava and beans. He has been running this business for 7 years. He works at the business 7 days a week. His business is the only source of income he has. Issa is facing the problem of the rainy season.
