Maseray is 26 years old and married with 1 child, age 2 years. She runs a general store business in Tombo, a western rural area in Sierra Leone.
She's been in this business since 2008 and sells biscuits, sugar, sweets and cigarettes within her neighborhood. She says that the main challenges to her business are improper business location and price increases.
Maseray requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more biscuits, sugar, sweets and cigarettes. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her capital and pay her installment. In the future, she would like to open a big slipper shop. She is grateful for your support.
