Marie's story

Meet 45-year-old Marie, from Waterloo2, an eastern area in Freetown. She is married and blessed with four children.

Marie began her business because she wanted to develop herself and her children. In 2001, Marie established her general stock business. She works at the business nine hours per day, seven days per week. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and transportation difficulties.

Marie requires a loan in order to purchase more items like cigarettes, biscuits, drinks, 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, Marie plans to own the biggest shop in the community. She thanks you for your support.
