Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 45-year-old Hawa from Kandeh town Bo, Southern area. She is married with 3 children. She was ahouse wife; she began her business because she wanted to improve her family status of living.

Hawa runs a food stand; she sells onions, cooking oil and maggi cubes for resale. She has been running this business for some years. She works at the business for 12 hours a day, 7 days per week. Hawa says that some times business is very slow.
