Mamie's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is Mamie, a 48-year-old from Torkpoi town, Bo Area Office. She is married, and has 5 children between the ages of 7 years and 24 years. Three of her children attend school.

Mamie runs a local food business at her house; she sells peppers, garri, and palm oil. she has been running this business for 10 years. She works at the business from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m., 7 days per week. She also gets income from small-scale farming in the village. Mamie says that the main challenge to her business is that the road network is very poor.

Mamie has requested a loan in order to purchase more palm oil and bags of pepper for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and buy a generator to make her home more comfortable. In the future, she plans to open a big store. She thanks you for your support!
