Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 40-year-old Adama from Port Loko. She is married with two children, ages 11 and 18 years. Her children are currently going to school. Her husband is a policeman, but his income is not enough to support the home.
Adama runs general stock items at her house; she sells cigarettes, milk, pure water, soda and biscuits. She has been running this business since 1996. She works at the business throughout the week from morning to night. Adama says that she is facing challenges with transportation.
Adama has requested a loan in order to buy more cigarettes, milk, pure water, and drinks. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children.
In the future, she plans to open a big shop. She thanks you for your support!
