Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is 42 years old and widowed with five children, two of whom are currently attending school. She runs a stall in Kandeh Town in Bo, in the southern area of Sierra Leone. She owns a stall in the market selling palm oil, 'gari' (manioc couscous) and rice. She also goes to people’s home to sell her products. Her business is open throughout the week. She entered into business because her mother was also a businesswoman. She also wants to help earn more income to educate her children and help replace her late husband. Her business is going well and every day she is getting new customers. With this loan, she wants to purchase more inventory such as palm oil, 'gari' and rice to increase her business. In the next five years, she wants to see her stall expand into a stand-alone shop. She wants to use the extra income to educate her children and further expand her business. She is grateful for your support.
