Mariama's story

Meet 47-year-old Mariama from Torkpoi town in Bo. She is married with five children between the ages of 8 and 27 years. Three of her children are currently attending school. In 1989, Mariama established her palm oil business. She began her business because she needed a source of income to support herself. She works at the business eight hours a day and six days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is the poor road network within her area of operation.

Mariama requires a loan in order to buy local foodstuffs like gari and palm oil. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to have a permanent business location and improve her family's welfare. In the future, Mariama plans to open a palm oil store. She thanks you for your support.
