Salamatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 41-year-old Salamatu from the Waterloo Eastern area in Freetown. She is married with 3 children between the ages of 6 months and 15 years. Two of her children are attending school. She started this business because she dropped out of school at an early age and decided to run a business because she doesn’t want to be idle.

Salamatu runs a provision shop; she sells milk, sugar, ovaltine, mayonnaise and drinks. She has been running this business since 2005. She works at the business seven days a week for twelve hours a day. Salamatu says that the main challenge in her business is that transporting her goods from the city to her business place is very difficult.

Salamatu has requested a loan in order to purchase milk, sugar, ovaltine, mayonnaise and drinks for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to buy a plot of land and renovate her house. In the future, she plans to open a big provision shop. She thanks you for your support!
