Fatmata's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 48-year-old Fatmata from Waterloo eastern area in Freetown. She is married and has three children between the ages of 9 years and 20 years. Two of her children attend school. Famata did not go to school, her parent taught her business, and her husband is a driver but his income is not enough to support the home, so she decided to start her business to generate income.

Fatmata runs a food market within a busy market area. She sells palm oil, gari and pepper. She has been running this business for 28 years. She works at the business from 5:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., seven days per week. Her business is the only income she has. Fatmata says that the main challenge to her business is the poor road network to the village where she buys goods.

Fatmata has requested a loan in order to buy more food like palm oil, gari and pepper. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and improve her standard of living. In the future, she plans to build a shop structure on her own and increase her business. She thanks you for your support!
