Meet 36-year-old Fatmata from Kandeh town in Sierra Leone. She is married with one child aged 15 years. In 2008, Fatmata established her palm oil business. She began her business because she needed to create a source of income to support her child. She works at the business 10 hours per day and six days per week. She says that her business is growing well.
Fatmata requires a loan in order to purchase more palm oil for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and repay her loan. In the future, Fatmata plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
