Hawanatu's story

This is 37-year-old Hawanatu. She is married and has three children aged 15, 12 and 10 years. In 2000, Hawanatu established her local foodstuff (groundnuts, rice and beans) business. She began her business as a way to support her husband in taking good care of the home. Working seven days a week and eight hours a day, she earns about 600,000 SLL (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of 6,000,000 SLL. Hawanatu requires a loan in order to buy 10 bags beans at 450,000 SLL, and will use the balance of 1,500,000 SLL to buy local rice. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 400,000 SLL. In the future, Hawanatu plans to rent a big store so that she will become a leading supplier of local foodstuffs. She thanks you for your support.
