Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 45-year-old Faith from Kandeh Town. She is married and has two children, 6 and 19. Both of her children attend school. She was a housewife, but she started her business to help her husband take care of the family. Faith runs a business selling palm oil and gari (processed cassava flour) at a big market. She applied for the loan from BRAC Sierra Leone to start traveling to Ghana to buy clothes to sell. She would like to use the extra income from her business to educate her children and help her business grow. She is grateful for your support!
