Work Hard Group's story

Haja leads this group of five entrepreneurs. She was born in the village of Tandata, in northern Sierra Leone, 30 years ago and is married to a businessman and the mother of three children, two of whom attend primary schools. For 10 years now, she has earned a living by selling various kinds of food – palm-oil (the most popular cooking oil), onions, pepper, tomatoes, margi (which is used to give sauce as sweet taste), fish and other items. With the help of this loan, Haja and her group members will be able to expand their businesses, make more sales and improve their living conditions. Haja will use her share of the loan (SLL 700,000) to buy food items in bulk to expand her current inventory.
