This is 29-year-old Christiana from Sierra Leone. She is married with 3 children, all between the ages of 2 and 9. Two of her children are going to school.
Christiana has a business that sells foodstuff such as palm oil, groundnuts, onions, and peppers in Torkpoi Town in Bo. She works at her business 9 hours a day, 6 days a week. She started her business to engage herself so that she does not need to depend on others. She says that her main challenge is transportation.
She wants to use the loan to purchase more stock including okra, palm oil, peppers, and sesame. With the extra income from the business, she wants to educate her children and grow her business. She greatly appreciates your support.
