A loan of $1,175 helped to buy more beans and 'benneh' (sesame) to expand her business.

Ruqiatu's story

This is 32-year-old Ruqiatu from Calabatown in Sierra Leone. She is married with two children, aged 9 and 15. They are both currently attending school.

Ruqiatu sells beans, 'benneh' (sesame) and groundnuts. She started her business in 2000 because she needed to create more income. She finds that the increase in transportation cost is her greatest challenge. She plans to use the loan to purchase more beans and 'benneh' (sesame) to expand her business. She hopes to one day become a producer of domestic goods. She greatly appreciates your support!
