Abu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 34-year-old Abu from Masuba, Makeni northern area in Sierra Leone. He is a married man with two children. He was a shop assistant and inherited the business from his father. Abu runs a stationery business within a busy market area. He sells pens, books and pencils. He has been running this business since 2001. He works at the business from 7:00am until 6:00pm, 6 days per week. Abu says that the main challenges to his business are electricity and transport to a neighboring country.
