This is 35-year-old Finda from Grassfield in the eastern section of Freetown, Sierra Leone. She is married with two children between the ages of 12 and 18 years old.
Finda runs a cosmetics shop within a busy market area. She sells cream, roll on, perfume and pads. She has been running this business for five years. She works at the business 12 hours a day and 7 days per week. Her business is the only source of income she has. She says that the main challenge to her business is price fluctuation.
Finda has requested a loan in order to buy more stock of items such as hair cream, baby oil, body cream, roll on, perfume and pad. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children. In the future, she plans to start a savings account. She appreciates your support.
