Alimatu's story

This is 55-year-old Alimatu. She is married and has 7 children aged 29, 26, 23, 21, 18, 14 and 11. She has 2 additional dependents that live with her to help with business. In 2002, Alimatu established her food item business to support her husband in the running of the home. Her business is located at the city center and her customers are mostly women. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 500,000 every month. Alimatu has already received and successfully repaid 1 loan, and now requires a new loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL to buy groundnut, dry peppers, and onions. She hopes that this loan will increase her stock. In the future, Alimatu plans to rebuild her house (that was burnt down), to perform Hajj, and to educate her children. She thanks you for your support.
