Ramatu's story

Meet 50-year-old Ramatu from Waterloo2 Eastern area in Freetown. She is widowed with 5 children. She began her business because she wants to be self-dependent. In 2002, Ramatu established her general stock business. She works at the business 9 hours per day, every day. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and insufficient capital to expand her business.
