Isatu is 21 years old and single. She has two children, aged one and four. She runs a general stock in Torkpoi town, Sierra Leone. She started her business to generate income to support her children.
She's been in this business for seven years, selling cosmetics, soda, and batteries at home. She says that the main challenge is insufficient capital to run the business.
Isatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy cosmetics, soda, and batteries. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her improve the life of her family and increase her business. In the future, she would like to expand her business to a shop level. She is grateful for your support.
