Abibatu's story

Meet 43-year-old Abibatu from Waterloo2, an eastern area in Freetown. She is married to a carpenter with seven children, but her husband's income is not enough to take care of the home.

Abibatu began her business because she wants to be independent. In 1998, she established her general stock business. She works at the business for nine hours per day, Monday to Friday. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and transportation difficulties.

Abibatu requires a loan in order to purchase more items, like cigarettes, biscuits, soap, and pure water. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and to have a permanent business location.

In the future, Abibatu plans to own the biggest shop in the community. She thanks you for your support.
