Memuna's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 45-year-old Memuna from Waterloo, in the eastern area in Freetown. She is married with 4 children between the ages of 9 years and 18 years. Three of her children attend school. She started in business to get daily survival for her family. Memuna runs a food stand business where she sells cooking seasonings, groundnuts and peppers. She has been running this business since 2000. She works at the business 9 hours per day and 7 days per week. Memuna says that the main challenge to her business is the problem of price control in the market. She has requested a loan in order to buy food commodities like cooking seasonings, oil, rice, groundnuts and peppers. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children. In the future, she plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support!
