Fatima's story

This is 27-year-old Fatima. She is married, and has two children aged ten and two years old. One is a school going child. She has one additional dependent who lives with her to be fostered. In 2007, Fatima established her rice, beans, gari, benin and couscous business. She began her business because she didn't attend school. She was only introduced to business by her parents. When she matured, her father gave her an amount of money which she used to buy groundnuts to sell at home. She generated some profit and started to go to the market for a food item business. After she got married her husband added an amount of money to her capital to continue the same business. Working 7 days a week and 13 hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,250,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Fatima requires a loan in order to buy bags of rice, gari, benin and beans. In the future, Fatima plans to develop their piece of land and provide quality education for their children. The loan will help to develop the business. Scarcity of goods and changes in prices are her major challenges. She is accommodating and friendly. She thanks you for your support.
