Alimatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 28-year-old Alimatu from Moriba town Bo in the southern area. She is the mother of one child, age 8. Her child is currently attending school.

Alimatu runs a general store business; she sells waxed cotton, lace and suitcases. She has been running this business for five years. She works at the business nine hours per day and six days per week. She has two relatives who help her run her business. Her business is the only income she has. Alimatu says that the main challenge to her business is the high cost of transportation and inflation.

Alimatu has requested a loan in order to buy a variety of stock such as waxed cotton, lace and suitcases for resell. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her child and improve her level of living. In the future, she plans to expand her business to a shop level. She thanks you for your support!
