Rugiatu's story

Meet 36-year-old Rugiatu from Moriba town in the southern region of Bo, Sierra Leone. She is widowed with 3 children between the ages of 12 and 18 years. Her children are currently attending school. In 1998, Rugiatu established her beverage business. After her husband died during the war, there was no one to take care of her family, so she decided to start the business as a permanent source of income. She works every day, 15 hours a day. She says that the main challenge to her business is the high cost of transportation. Rugiatu requires a loan in order to buy more soft drinks, stout, beer, and fruit wine. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children. In the future, Rugiatu plans to expand her business further. She thanks you for your support.
