Mariama is 40 years old, married and has 2 children, ages 10 and 18 years. She runs a fish business in Tombo Western rural area in Sierra Leone. She started this business to get her daily living.
She's been in this business since after she got married and sells fish within a busy market. She says that at present her business is doing well and out of the profit she is able to provide for her family.
Mariama requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy purchase more fish for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and have a permanent business location. In the future, she would like to expand her business to a higher level. She is grateful for your support.
