A loan of $375 helped to purchase cigarettes, assorted drinks and biscuits to expand her business.


Victoria's story

Meet Victoria - she is 30 years old and from Aberdeen Western area, Freetown. She is married with three children. In 2008, Victoria established her general store business. She began her business because she wanted to develop her standard of living. She works at the business from 8am until 6pm, six days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is price inflation.

Victoria requires a loan in order to purchase cigarettes, assorted drinks and biscuits to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her status of living and increase her business. Seemingly distinct businesses are often mixed in Sierra Leone, the idea being that a customer will come to purchase one thing but will leave having purchased another. In the future, Victoria plans to expand her business to be more than even a store. She thanks you for your support.
