Jariah's story

This is 35-year-old Jariah from Kandeh town in the southern area of Bo, Sierra Leone. She is married and has five children between the ages of 10 and 19. Three of her children are currently attending school. She also has two dependents living with her: relatives from the village. She began her business because her husband is out of a job. She wanted to generate an income to support their family.

Jariah runs a provision shop at her house; she sells milk, sugar, bread, and soft drinks. She has been running this business for 15 years. She works at the business every day from 6:00 am until 11:00 pm. Jariah and her family are living in the shop. She does not have any source of income except her business. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and insufficient capital to invest in her business.

Jariah has requested a loan in order to buy more milk, sugar, bread, and soft drinks. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and improve her welfare. In the future, she plans to be a supplier. She appreciates your support.
