Massie is 38 years old and married, with four children between the ages of 8 years and 18 years. She runs a local foodstuff business at her house in Kandeh town. She began this business in order to educate her children and give them proper care.
Massie has been in this business for ten years. She sells palm oil, gari, and pepper. She also earns income from renting out a house. She says that, at present, her business is doing well.
She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone Microfinance Company Limited, to buy more local foodstuff like palm oil, gari, and pepper. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her improve her family's standard of living. In the future, she would like to open a permanent palm oil store. She is grateful for your support.
