Rugiatu's story

Meet 38-year-old Rugiatu from Waterloo2, Western rural area, in Sierra Leone. She is married with four children.

In 2001, Rugiatu established her retail business. She began her business because she wants to empower herself. She works at the business ten hours per day and six days per week. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and insufficient capital to expand her business.
