Kadiatu is 22 years old and married with two children, ages 3 years and 6 years. She runs general stock items in Moribatown market Southern area in Bo, Sierra Leone. She began this business because she did not go to school and she got married at an early age. Business is the only option she has.
She's been in this business for three years and sells soap, sugar, cigarettes, and books within a busy market area. She also earns income from her husband, who works as a policeman, to have another income to support the home. She describes her hardships as low purchasing power of customers and price fluctuation.
She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy a variety of stock like soap, sugar, cigarettes, and books. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and educate her children.
In the future, she would like to see her business grow at a higher level. She is grateful for your support.
