Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 30-year-old Agness from Kandeh town, Bo. She is married to a pastor and has three children between the ages of 6 years and 11 years. Two of her children attend school.

To earn a living, she operate a retail business; she sells fertilizer, corn power, rice and gari (a staple food made from cassava). For the past few years, she has been running this business, and she works at the business every day morning to night. Her other source of income comes from her husband. At present, she is facing transportation challenges.

Agness has requested a loan in order to buy more fertilizer, corn power, rice and gari. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve the life of her family. In the future, she plans to open a big shop. She thanks you for your support!
