Zainaba's story

Meet 32-year-old Zainab from Waterloo in the eastern part of Freetown, Sierra Leone. She is married with three children between the ages of seven and 15 years old. Her children are currently attending school. In 2000, Zainab established her general merchandise business. She began her business because she came from a very poor home and it was hard to take care of her family and relatives. She works at the business from 7:00 am until 7:30 pm seven days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is that during the rainy season purchasing power is slow.

Zainab requires a loan in order to buy more drinks containers, washing boards and dishes. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her standard of living and educate her children. In the future, Zainab plans to expand her business and build a house. She thanks you for your support.
