Foday, a 50-year-old married father of six children between the ages of 11 and 27, four of whom are currently attending school, runs a provisions store in Calabatown in the eastern part in Freetown. In this business for 10 years, Foday sells milk, sugar, ovaltine and eggs, and also earns income from renting out a house. He says that his main business challenge is price inflation.

Requesting this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more provision items, Foday says that the resulting extra income will help him improve his standard of living and educate his children. In the future, he would like to expand his business.
