Fatmata's story

Meet 45-year-old Fatmata from Waterloo eastern area in Sierra Leone. She is married with 4 children who are between the ages of 12 and 27. Three of her children are currently attending school. In 1998, Fatmata established general store business within the community. She began her business because she was growing up keen to do business since she was a child. She works at the business from 8:00am until 7:00 pm, 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is transportation. Fatmata requires a loan in order to purchase more milk, mayonnaise, toothpaste, batteries, butter, and sardines. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to become more successful and pay her children's school fees. In the future, Fatmata plans to expand her enterprise to wholesale. She thanks you for your support.
