This is 46-year-old Hawa from Sierra Leone. She lives in Moriba Town, Bo, located in the southern region of the country. She is widowed with 4 children, with the youngest being 4 years old. Two of her children currently attend school.
Hawa runs a business selling palm oil. She started the business to improve the life of her family. She works at her business for 9 hours per day, every day of the week.
She wants to use this loan to purchase more palm oil. She says that transportation for her business is a challenge. She wants to use the extra income generated from the loan to improve the life and education of her children.
She is grateful for your support!
