This is 49-year-old Princess from Kandeh Town in Sierra Leone. She is married with five adult children. Her husband is a retired worker. Princess operates a store selling assorted beverages, including fresh milk and soft drinks. She initially started her business to improve herself and her store sold local foodstuff such as gari and palm oil.
Princess requested this loan from BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more inventory for the expansion of her business. She says that her customer demand for her products is very strong but she does not have the capital to purchase sufficient stock. The extra income generated from the loan will help improve her standard of life. In the future, she hopes to own and operate more shops in the area. She appreciates your support.
