Meet 35-year-old Fatmata from the Waterloo Eastern area in Freetown. She is married with four children between the ages of one year and four years.

She began her business because she wants to create her own source of income, instead of depending on her husband. In 2008, Fatmata established her general store business. She works at the business from 8 am to 12 pm, Monday to Friday. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and transportation difficulties.

Fatmata requires a loan in order to purchase more items like cigarettes, biscuits, juice, and pure water. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and have a permanent business location. In the future, Fatmata plans to own the biggest shop in the community. She thanks you for your support.
