Ramatu is in her late 20s and married. She has three children. She runs a general store in Waterloo in the western rural area of Sierra Leone.

She's been in this business since 2008 and sells soda, milk, cigarettes and biscuits in her community. She says that the main problem for her business is lack of capital to expand.

Ramatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more soda, milk, cigarettes and biscuits for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and improve her standard of living.

In the future, she would like to buy a plot of land. She is grateful for your support.
