Yeabu is 39 years old, widowed, and has three children, ages 7 years to 15 years. She runs a food stand at Moriba Town in the southern area of Sierra Leone. She began her business because she need a permanent source of income to support her children. She has been in this business for the past 10 years, and she sells fish, onions, and rice in a busy market area. Storage is one of the big challenges she faces in her business. She applied for this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy food commodities, such as fish, cooking oil and rice. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her improve her life and educate her children. In the future, she would like to expand her business. She is grateful for your support
