Makeni, Sierra Leone / Food Stall

A loan of $1,050 helped to buy eggs, Maggie, and tomato ketchup for her food stall.


Hawa O.'s story

This is 60-year-old Hawa O. She is married with eight adult children. In 1980, Hawa O. established her food stall. She started it because she did not go to school, and her parents were traders who trained her in their business. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,200,000 every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,500,000 in order to purchase cake flour - 5 bags @ Le150,000, sugar - 4 bags @ Le250,000, vegetable oil - 5 rubbers @ Le150,000, eggs - 5 cartons @ Le320,000, couscous (wheat) - 2 cartons @ Le200,000. In the future, Hawa O. plans to expand her business and save enough money for her retirement. The rainy season is a major problem. She is hardworking and needs enough capital to buy more stock in order to yield profit. She thanks you for your support.
