Musu's story

Meet 43-year-old Musu from Moriba town Bo, Southern area, Sierra Leone. She is widowed with three children between the ages of 10 and 20. Two of her children are currently attending school. In 2005, Musu established her palm oil business. She began her business because as a widow, she wants to generate income to support her family. She works at the business 8 hours per day, 6 days per week. She says that the main challenges to her business are competition in the palm oil business and sometimes vehicle breakdown on the way.

Musu requires a loan in order to purchase more local food like palm oil, beans and native rice. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and pay her installment. In the future, Musu plans to educate her children up to collage level. She thanks you for your support.
