Carrie from Freetown, Sierra Leone

Help me launch my cosmetics business!

I want to start selling cosmetics and need help to cover the cost of buying supplies and renting space.


I am a single parent struggling to meet the needs of my family. I come from an impoverished background so I was unable to complete my education. But I have dreams of a better life and am ready to get started on my journey.

I want to start a business selling cosmetics so I can earn money while being able to tend to my children. One day, I dream of earning my way out of poverty through my successful business. I also want my children to get a good education and having an income will help me achieve that.

I need help covering the cost of supplies and the cost of rent for my new business.

Being able to open my own business will allow me the opportunity to earn my way out of poverty while looking after my children. This path will help me provide opportunities to my children that I never had.

The team in Sierra Leone has strongly recommended Carrie for support. It would be awesome if we could help her start a small business. This would help put food on the table and send her kids to school.
