Marie's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 45-year-old Marie from Torkpoi town, Bo, Southern area. She is married with five children. Four of her children are currently attending school.

Marie runs a food stand business, selling onions, cooking oil and Maggi (flavoring cubes). She has been running this business for some years. She works at the business 12 hours, 7 days per week. Marie says that the main challenge to her business is poor road network within her operation area.

Marie has requested a loan in order to purchase more onions, cooking oil and Maggi to expand her business. The extra income from this loan will allow her to develop herself and her family and repay her loan. In the future, she plans to open a big food store. She thanks you for your support!
