Mariatu's story

Meet Mariatu, she is 22-year-old from Aberdeen Western area Freetown. She is single with 1 child. Mariatu established her retail business in 2013. She began her business in order to improve her family's well being. She works at the business from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm, 6 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand her business.

Mariatu 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 increase her standard 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 Mariatu plans to expand her business. She thanks you for your support.
