Fatmata, 27, is from Port Loko in the northern area of Sierra Leone. She is married and has two children who are between the ages of two and five.
Fatmata runs a clothing business selling trousers, shirts, and blouses. She has been running this business for five years. She works twelve hours per day, seven days per week. She says that her business is growing because she got a small loan from BRAC. To date, she has taken out three loans.
Fatmata is requesting a loan in order to buy more trousers, shirts, and blouses. The extra income she will earn as a result of this loan will allow her to expand her business and educate her children. In the future, she plans to open a big boutique. She appreciates your support.
