Matilda's story

Matilda is 48 years old, married, and has three children, two of whom attend school. She is from Moriba town Bo in the southern area of Sierra Leone. Matilda runs a food stand business, selling onions, cooking oil, and Maggi, which she has been doing for 10 years. She works at the business from 9 AM until 4 PM, six days per week. The main challenge to Matilda's business is poor road network within her area.

Matilda requested a loan, which she will use to purchase more onions, cooking oil, and Maggi to expand her business. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and repay her loan. In the future, she plans to open a big food store.
