Salamatu, 33, is from Waterloo, which is in the eastern area of Freetown, Sierra Leone. She is married and has a 15-year-old child. Her child is currently attending school.

Some years ago, Salamatu established her business. She began her business when she get pregnant and decided to no longer further her education. She decided to start a business because her parents also operated a business.

Salamutu works at her business from 7:00 am until 8:00 pm, six days per week. She says that the main challenge for her business is transportation.

Salamatu is requesting a loan to buy more rice, Maggie, onion, cooking oil, and seasoning. She hopes that the extra income generated from this loan will allow her to create a permanent source of income for her family. In the future, Salamatu plans to expand her food store business.

She thanks you for your support.
