Mariatu's story

Meet 35-year-old Mariatu from Port Loko in the northern area in Sierra Leone. She is married with three children between the ages of 8 years and 15 years. Her children are currently attending school. In 2010, Mariatu established her cookery business. She began her business because she was trained with business and she thinks it is more profitable. She works at the business 12 hours per day and seven days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is the price inflation of goods.

Mariatu requires a loan in order to purchase more palm oil, rice, cooking seasoning and drinks. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her standard of living and pay her children's school fees. In the future, Mariatu plans to buy a plot of land. She thanks you for your support.
