Koma's story

Koma is in her late 50s and lives in the Jui area of eastern Freetown. She is a widow with four children, one of whom is still in school. She opened a food-selling business 30 years ago to generate income to support and care for her family. The main items she sells are palm oil, salt and seasonings, and she works 12 hours a day, seven days a week. The main challenges she faces are a low income and the high cost of transportation. She is requesting a loan to buy more items to sell, and will use the additional income she earns to put money aside for her old age and to renovate her house. In the future, she plans to expand her stall into a food store. She expresses thanks for your support.
