Meet 27-year-old Fatmata from Jui Eastern in Freetown. She is married with three children between the ages of six and 11. One of her children is currently attending school.

In 2003, Fatmata established her plastic slippers business within a busy market area. She began her business because she needs to create a permanent source of income to support the home. She works at the business for eight hours per day, seven days per week. She says that at present her business is doing well.

Fatmata requires a loan in order to purchase more plastic slippers for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to pay for her children's school expenses and increase her business. In the future, she plans to expand her business.
