Meet Salamatu. She is a 39-year-old woman from Jui, a western, rural area in Freetown. She is married, with three children.

More than ten years ago, Salamatu established her clothing material business. She began her business because she wanted to generate a permanent source of income to empower herself. She works at the business from 8:00am until 5:30pm, seven days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand her business.

Salamatu requires a loan in order to purchase more bras, underwear, and different kinds of clothing material to sell. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and increase her business.

In the future, Salamatu plans to further expand her business. She thanks you for your support.
