Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 46-year-old Jarai from Moriba town Bo. She is married with three children between the ages of 13 and 23 years old. Her children are currently attending school. She began her business because she wanted to contribute to supporting the home.
Jarai runs an egg business. She sells a variety of food commodities like eggs, biscuits and soft drinks. She has been running this business for 15 years. She works at the business 10 hours per day and 7 days per week. Jarai says that the sales are quite encouraging and her customer rate has improved.
Jarai has requested a loan in order to purchase more eggs, biscuits and soft drinks to expand her business. The extra income from this loan will allow her to pay her children's school fees and increase her business. In the future, she plans to have a permanent residence. She thanks you for your support!
