Lucinda's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 35-year-old Lucinda from Tombo, a western rural area. She is married with three children between the agess of 6 and 13 years. Two of her children attend school.

Lucinda runs a cloth business. She sells wax cotton and tie-dye material within her community. She has been running this business since 2001. Lucinda works at the business ten hours per day and seven days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand her business.

Lucinda has requested a loan in order to purchase more wax cotton and tie-dye for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to start a savings account and increase her business. In the future, she plans to open a big clothing shop. She thanks you for your support!
