Rugiatu's story

Meet 35-year-old Rugiatu from Kandeh town Bo in Sierra Leone. She is a single parent with two children between the ages of 9 and 18 years. Her children are currently attending school. In 1999, Rugiatu established her clothing business. She began her business because she did not go to school; her mother trained her in business. Rugiatu works at her business seven days per week and 9 hours per day. She says despite the challenges of single parent life and insufficient capital to expand her business, she is very hard working and intends to give her children a quality education.

Rugiatu requires a loan in order to buy different kinds of clothing material like shoes, crepe and men's T-shirts for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and improve her and her children's lives. In the future, Rugiatu plans to build a big residential house. She thanks you for your support.
