Martha from Freetown, Sierra Leone

I'm a food vendor; I need help to cover housing costs while I get back on my feet.

This need will cover the rental for an apartment for enough time that I'll be able to restart my business and begin supporting my children.


I am a food vendor. I sell food – rice and stew - and this helps feed my family.

My goals are to grow my small business and earn enough to take care of my family.

I need help with paying the rental costs for an apartment. I am not able to cover this currently from my income, but it will give me a chance to get back on my feet.

Meeting this need will provide an appropriate and safe home for my children to grow and develop. I will be able to get back on my feet and properly take care of my family. It will help restore dignity.
