Koso B's story

Meet 50-year-old Koso, from Waterloo Eastern area in Freetown. She is married and has two children, ages 9 and 26 years. She began her business because she wanted to create her own source of income, instead of depending on her husband. In 2009, Koso established her general store business. She works at the business from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM, Monday to Friday. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and transportation difficulties.

Koso requires a loan in order to purchase more items to sell, like cigarettes, biscuits, soft drinks and pure water. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to pay her child's school fees and to buy a piece of land. In the future, Koso plans to own the biggest shop in the community. She thanks you for your support.
