Tonya from Freetown, Sierra Leone

I'm ready to start my own business selling food!

I need financial help to start my business. I need money to help me purchase supplies and rent space to launch my food store.


I am a young mother who had to drop out of school when I became pregnant. I have two school-age children and one toddler at home that I care for.

I want to open my own business selling food so I can earn the money I need to care for my family and send my kids to school. With my own business, I can work while caring for my young child.

I need financial help to start my business. I need money to help me purchase food to sell, rent space to sell my food, and the tools necessary to run my business successfully.

Having the money I need to start my business will move me forward by giving me a chance to earn my way out of poverty. It will allow me to educate my children so they will have more opportunities than I did.

Validated by Sylvester from Develop Africa (What does this mean?)

The team has strongly recommended Tonya as a young mother who deserves support. With both her and the father of her children currently unemployed, things have been tough financially. It would be wonderful if we could help her get started - so she can generate some income through this small business.
