Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 37-year-old Ramatta from Lunsar, Northern area. She is married with four children between the ages of 1 year and 15 years. She began this business to create a source of income.
Ramatta runs a food stock business at her house; she sells palm oil, rice and pepper. She has been running this business for the past 15 years. She works at the business throughout the week. Ramatta says that her major problem is the poor road network.
Ramatta has requested a loan in order to buy more palm oil, rice and pepper. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and become an international businesswoman. In the future, she plans to build a house. She thanks you for your support!
