Fatmata's story

This is 51 year-old Fatmata. She is married and has five children ages 25, 24, 21, 18 and 15. She has one additional dependent who lives with her as her sales girl. In 2003, Fatmata established her commercial business. She began her business just to provide help to her husband in the running of the home. Her business is located at the center of town and her main customers are men and women. Working seven days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about 700,000 SLL every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of 6,250,000 SLL. Fatmata has already received and successfully repaid three loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy Irish potatoes (1,500,000 SLL), soft drinks (800,000 SLL) and eggs (3,000,000 SLL). She hopes that with this loan and the additional income generated by the loan she will be able to her solve her problems. In the future, Fatmata plans to build a house, to give her children a quality education and to travel to the holy land of Mecca. She appreciates the gesture she is receiving from Kiva. She thanks you for your support.
