Meet 30-year-old Janet from Jui Eastern area in Freetown. She is married with three children.
Ten years ago, Janet established her food stand business. She began her business because she wants to create her daily living for her children. She works at the business from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., seven days per week. She is very hardworking and has a desire to improve her standard of living.
Janet requires a loan in order to purchase a variety of rice, flour and cooking seasonings to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to feed her children and increase her business.
In the future, Janet plans to expand her business more. She thanks you for your support.
