In 2011, Chernor Iye established her provisions business, selling mainly soft drinks, luncheon meat, pure water, sardines, and biscuits. She began her business because she had only Arabic education, as tradition does not allow a girl child to attend any formal school. She helped her father in his business and later got married at a young age; her husband gave her some money to start her own business. Working 7 days a week and 15 hours a day, she earns about 5,415,000 SLL every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL in order to buy soft drinks, luncheon meat, pure water, sardines, and biscuits.

In the future, Chernor Iye plans to build a dwelling house and educate her children.

The loan will help maximize her profits.

She thanks you for your support.
