Isatu is 30 years old and married with four children between the ages of 2 years and 10 years old. She runs a fish vending business in Tombo, a western rural area in Sierra Leone. She started this business to earn her daily living. Her husband is a driver, but his income is not enough to support the home.
She's been in this business since an early age and sells fish within her community. She says, at present, she is facing a storage problem in her business.
Isatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more fish for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her to increase her business and have a permanent business location. In the future, she would like to expand her business to a big fish table. She is grateful for your support.
