Yabom T's story

Meet 28-year-old Yabom from Tombo, in rural western Sierra Leone. She is married and has two children, ages 7 and 5 years. Her children are currently attending school. In 2003, Yabom established her cookery business. She began her business to generate a source of living for her children. She works at the business 10 hours per day and 6 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is when all of the food she cooked for the day is not eaten by customers -- in that case, it will spoil.

Yabom requires a loan in order to buy rice, palm oil and cooking seasonings, to increase her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business further. In the future, Yabom plans to open a more formal restaurant. She thanks you for your support.
