Elizabeth's story

Meet 24-year-old Elizabeth from Waterloo eastern area in Freetown, Sierra Leone. She is married and a mother with one child aged 4 years old. She has two additional dependents at home. In 2007, Elizabeth established her general merchandise business at Waterloo market. She began her business because her parents forced her to marriage at an early age without her completing her secondary school education. She works at the business 11 hours a day and 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is transporting the goods from the purchasing place to her store. Elizabeth requires a loan in order to buy different kinds of general stock items like rice, salt and oil. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to give her child a quality education and improve her standard of living. In the future, Elizabeth plans to have her own transport facility for her business and open another store. She thanks you for your support. The woman featured in the video is the credit officer for Elizabeth's loan.
