Rugiatu's story

Meet Rugiatu. She is 40 years old from Masuba, Makeni in the southern area of Sierra Leone. She is widowed with four children. Some years ago, Rugiatu established her food stand business. She began her business because she wanted to take care of her younger kid’s welfare. She works at the business throughout the week. She says that the main challenge to her business is price inflation and insufficient capital to expand her business.

Rugiatu requires a loan to purchase more bags of native rice and general stock for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her status of living and increase her business. In the future, Rugiatu plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
