Safiatu's story

Meet 42-year-old Safiatu from Calaba Town in the eastern area of Freetown. She is married with two children between the ages of 12 and 18 years. Her children are currently attending school. In 1986, Safiatu established her general merchandise business. She began her business because she did not go to school but she was trained in business. She works from 8:30am until 6:00pm, seven days per week. She says that the main challenges to her business are insufficient capital and scarcity of stock in the market.

Safiatu requires a loan in order to buy more rice, cooking oil, pure water and assorted drinks. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and improve her business. In the future, Safiatu plans to open another outlet. She thanks you for your support.
