Mariama's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 39-year-old Mariama from Southern area in Bo. She is married with four children between the ages of 14 years and 20 years. Two of her children attend school. She began her business after the war because she had no money and needed a way to feed her children. Mariama runs a cookery business from her house; she sells local food like beans rice, cassava leaf rice and pure water. She has been running this business for nine years. She works at the business every day. She starts preparing the food at 4:30am and doesn't rest until the food is finished. Her other source of income comes from the sales of palm oil. At present she is faced with a problem of insufficient capital to run her business.

Mariama has requested a loan in order to buy more cooking items such as bags of rice, Maggie, salt and vegetable oil. The extra income from this loan will allow her to expand her cookery business. In the future, she plans to open a restaurant. She thanks you for your support!
