Fatmata's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 30-year-old Fatmata from Tombo Western rural area in Freetown. She is married and blessed with 2 children between the ages 5 years and 11 years old. She started this business to get their daily food out of the cookery sales.

Fatmata runs a cookery business at home. She sells cookery food at her house. She started running this business after the war. She works at the business throughout the week, from morning to night. Fatmata says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and insufficient finances to expand her business.

Fatmata has requested a loan in order to buy more cooking items, such as rice, palm oil and cooking seasonings. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and increase her business. In the future, she plans to build a house. She thanks you for your support!
