Sallay's story

Meet Sallay. She is in her late forties and from Wara wara, in the Northern area in Sierra Leone. She is widowed with children. In 2000, Sallay established her local food business. She began her business because she wants to generate a permanent source of income to support the home. She works at the business 11 hours per day, six days per week. She says that her business is doing well.

Sallay requires a loan in order to purchase more palm oil, bags of beans, native rice, and groundnuts for resale. Palm oil is red in color and is the corner stone of Sierra Leonean cuisine. It is used as the base for spicy stews. Good quality oil is said to be high in antioxidants. The oil is usually sold in yellow plastic cans. Borrowers like Sallay save money when they buy their oil in bulk.

She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to take care of her family welfare and increase her business. In the future, Sallay plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
