Zainab's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 38-year-old Zainab from Kandeh town Bo, in the southern area. She is married and has five children between the ages of 7 years and 20 years. Two of her children attend school.

Zainab runs a general stock business. She sells slippers and wax cotton. She has been running this business for five years. She began her business because her husband is a diamond digger but his income is not enough to take care of the home, so she started this business to develop herself and her children. She describes herself as a hardworking woman and says that her business is doing well.

Zainab has requested a loan in order to buy more wax cotton, baskets and slippers. The extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and pay her children's school fees. In the future, she plans to develop herself and improve her business. She thanks you for your support!
