Abibatu is 34 years old and married, with four children ranging in age from 3 years to 15 years. She sells dried oyster, fish and corn at Moriba town in the southern area of Bo in Sierra Leone. She wakes up early in the morning and goes to the next village to her local food market.
She's been in this business for 7 years. She does not have any other source of income aside from her business. She says that the main challenge to her business is the poor road network.
She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy dried oyster, fish and corn. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her educate her children and improve her business. In the future, she would like to expand her business to a shop level. She is grateful for your support.
