A loan of $275 helped to purchase more palm oil, coconut oil and coal nuts to expand her business.


Salamatu's story

Meet 45-year-old Salamatu from Waterloo, the eastern area in Freetown. She is widowed with 5 children. For the past 25 years, Salamatu established her retail business alongside a coal nut and palm oil business at her house. She began her business because she generates her own source of income. She works at the business from 8:00am until 7:00pm, 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is the slow purchasing power of the customers.

Salamatu requires a loan in order to purchase more palm oil, coconut oil and coal nuts to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her status of living and increase her business. In the future, Salamatu plans to expand her business more. She thanks you for your support.
