Fatmata is 42 years old and married with six children between the ages of 2 years and 21 years. She runs a clothing business in the northern area in Sierra Leone.

She's been in this business for five years and sells wax cotton and baby clothes. She says that the main challenge to her business is slow purchasing power during the rainy season.

Fatmata requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more wax cotton and jeans for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her support her children and take care of her family. In the future, she would like to open a big shop. She is grateful for your support.
