Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 46-year-old Hastina from Tengbeh in western Freetown. She is married with two children aged nine and nineteen years. Both attend school.

For the past ten years Hastina has run a building materials store where she sells cement, shovels, zinc, nails, etc. She works ten hours a day, seven days a week and has one employee. The family also gets money from her husband who works in the provinces. Hastina says that the main challenge to her business is the lack of a vehicle to deliver materials to her customers.

Hastina has requested a 5,000,000 SLL loan from BRAC Sierra Leone in order to buy more building materials to sell. The extra income from this loan will allow her to take care of her family.

In the future, Hastina plans to open a construction company. She thanks you for your support!
