A married mother, Mematu is 28 years old and has one child, age 5 years. Her child is going to school.
She runs a boutique enterprise in Jui Eastern area in Freetown. She began this business because she was a housewife, and she wanted to stop sitting at home. Instead, she wants to earn her own income.
She has been in this business since 2007 and sells jeans, shoes, bags, and male and female clothing. She says that despite the challenges, she is a very hardworking woman and desires to become successful.
Mematu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase a variety of jeans, shoes, bags, and male and female clothing. She says that the resulting extra income will help her to increase her business and improve her status of living.
In the future, she would like to open a fashion design shop. She is grateful for your support.
