A loan of $300 helped to purchase bags of charcoal to expand her business.


Fatmata's story

Meet Fatmata. She is a late-forties-old from the Waterloo eastern area in Freetown. She is married, with seven children. In 2007, Fatmata established her charcoal business. She began her business because she wanted to empower herself. She works at the business from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m., 7 days per week. She says the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand. Fatmata requires a loan in order to purchase bags of charcoal to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her welfare and increase her business. In the future, Fatmata plans to open a food stand table. She thanks you for your support.
