Mamusu is 35 years old and married with one child, who is 23. She runs a used items store in Tengbeh town, Sierra Leone.
She has been in this business for eight years and sells chairs, tires, mattresses, foam, and bags at her store. She also earns income from a commercial taxi. She says that the main challenge to her business is a lack of capital to increase her investment in her store.
Mamusu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more used items, such as vono mattresses, chairs, and bags. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her to contribute to her daughter's schooling. In the future, she would like to own a permanent store in town. She is grateful for your support.
