A loan of $250 helped to purchase food containers, plates and cups to expand her business.


Fatmata's story

Meet 48-year-old Fatmata from Tombo, in the western rural area of Freetown, in Sierra Leone.

Fatmata is married with five children. After her wedding, she established her retail business because she wanted to create a permanent source of income for her family.

She works at the business from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., seven days per week. She says the main challenges to her business are price inflation and business location.

Fatmata requires a loan to purchase food containers, plates and cups to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income generated from this loan will enable her to improve her status of living and increase her business.

In the future, Fatmata plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
