Fatmata's story

Meet 35-year-old Fatmata from Waterloo Western rural in Freetown in Sierra Leone. She is married and has 3 children. Fatmata established her local snacks business 5 years ago because she wanted to create income to educate her children. She works at the business 6 days per week, from 8:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. She says that her business is doing well and provides her with income to take care of her children.

Fatmata requires a loan in order to purchase more fruit and gari (cassava flakes) to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her status of living and to increase her business. In the future, Fatmata plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
