Jenneh is 45 years old and married with three children, ages 14 years to 25 years. Two of her children are currently attending school.
She runs a palm oil stand at her house, in Torkpoi town Southern area in Bo in Sierra Leone. Her husband is elderly; he cannot earn any income to bring into the home. She also earns income from her daughter.
She’s been in this business for 20 years, and she sells palm oil, gari, and beans. She says the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to run her business.
She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more bags of pepper and a gallon of palm oil. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her improve her living and increase her business.
In the future, she would like to open a palm oil store. She is grateful for your support.
