Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 39-year-old Martha from Kandeh town. She is married with five children between the ages of seven and 22. Four of her children are attending school. For the past eight years, Martha has been running a cement business and selling cement at her house. She works throughout the week. Martha's major business challenge is problems with transportation.

Martha is requesting a loan to purchase more construction supplies such as cement to resell. The extra income from her loan will allow her to change her family's standard of living and increase her business. In the future, Martha hopes to export her goods. She thanks you for your support!
