A loan helped to purchase cigarettes, drinks and provisions to expand her business.


Salamatu's story

Meet Salamatu, a 41-year-old from Tombo Western rural in Freetown in Sierra Leone. She is married with four children. In 2006, Salamatu established her provision business. She was a student. She started her business because she wanted to empower herself. She works at the business from 8:00 am until 5:30 pm, six days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is transportation problems.

Salamatu requires a loan in order to purchase cigarettes, drinks and provisions to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to build a house 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, Salamatu plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
