A loan of $925 helped to buy more timber to add to her current stock.


Mariama's story

Pictured here is Mariama, a petty businesswoman in Kenema, a city in eastern Sierra Leone. A native of Kenema, the 48-year-old is a widow with eight children, seven of whom are attending primary, secondary and tertiary institutions.

Mariama has been a businesswoman for many years now. One of her greatest successes is educating her children. And her greatest challenge is transportation.

Hiring a vehicle to transport the timber to the market remains a big challenge for Mariama. But she is very optimistic that this is a challenge she will overcome, as success is her dream.

Mariama has requested a loan of 4,000,000 Leones in order to buy more timber to add to her current stock.
