Zainab's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 37-year-old Zainab from Grassfield in the eastern area of Freetown. She is married with two children between the ages of 12 and 18 years old. Her children attend school. Her husband works in security but his income is not enough to support the home. She began this business because she wants to generate income to support her family. She was a student at a vocational training school doing Gara dyeing.

Zainab runs a provision shop where she sells sugar, bread, cheese, custard, milk, and Quaker oats. She has been running this business for seven years. She works at the business seven days per week. Her business is the only source of income she has. Her major problem is transportation costs from town to her business place.

Zainab has requested a loan in order to buy similar items in her shop such as sugar, bread, cheese, custard, milk, and Quaker oats. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and start up a savings account. In the future, she plans to open another shop. She thanks you for your support!
