Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 35-year-old Stella from Waterloo Eastern area in Freetown. She is married with 3 children between the ages of 11 and 16 years. Her children are attending school.
Stella runs a television business; she sells used televisions and used shoes. She has been running this business for 10 years. She works at the business 12 hours per day and 7 days per week. Stella says that the main challenge to her business is an improper business location.
Stella has requested a loan in order to purchase used televisions and used shoes for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and educate her children. In the future, she plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support!
