Tiangah is 50 years old and married with four children, ranging in age from 15 to 25. She runs a food stand in a busy market area at Kandeh town Southern area in Bo, Sierra Leone.
She has been in this business for 30 years, selling onions, Maggi (seasoning), pepper and garden egg (eggplant) at her house. Her older children also earn an income. She says her business is going well because the market is very close to her house.
Tiangah requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy similar items like onions, Maggi, pepper and garden egg. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her improve her standard of living. In the future, she would like to expand her business to a shop level. She is grateful for your support.
