Betty's story

This is 40-year-old Betty from Torpoi town Bo, Southern area in Sierra Leone. She is married and has three children, from 10 to 20 years old. Two of her children are currently attending school.

Betty operates a business selling dried fish. She has been running this business for the past 20 years. She works at the business every day, smoking the fish from 8:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m. and taking the fish to the market around 7:30 a.m., not resting until the fish is sold. Her business is the only income she has. She says that the main challenges to her business are transportation problems between the place where she purchases the raw fish to her house and a poor road network.

Betty has requested a loan to buy more raw fish to expand her business. 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 own a plot of land. She appreciates your support.
