Meet 45-year-old Adama from Waterloo, Eastern area, in Freetown. She is married and has six children between the ages of 4 years and 20 years. Three of her children are currently attending school.
In 2001, Adama established her natural medicines business. She began her business because she was trained by her grandmother. She works at the business from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., Monday to Saturday. She says that the main challenge to her business is the slow purchasing power of customers.
Adama requires a loan in order to purchase more natural medicines to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and increase her business.
In the future, Adama plans to expand her natural medicines more. She thanks you for your support.
