A loan of $100 helped to purchase fish to prepare and offer for sale.


Gbassary's story

Gbassary prepares and sells fish to earn an income. She offers her wares at a busy market, working 10 hours per day, six days per week. She has been running this business since 2006. She cites her primary challenge as the inconsistent availability of fish from the wharf.

She is in her early forties and lives in the Tombo Western rural area of Freetown. Her husband is a fisherman and they are blessed with four children between the ages of four and 20 years old. Two of the children are still attending school.

Gbassary has requested a loan in order to purchase more fish to prepare and offer for sale. The extra income generated from this loan will allow her to ensure the education of her children and to make essential renovations to her house. Her goal for the future is to build a new house for the family to live in.

She thanks you for your support!
