Betty is 48 years old and married with two children. She runs a cookery business in Jui Eastern area in Freetown. She began this business to take care of her children's welfare. She's been in this business for eight years and sells local food within her community. She says that the main problem in her business is insufficient capital to expand it.
Betty requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more cooking seasonings, rice and cooking oil to expand her business for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and educate her children. In the future, she would like to expand her business even more. She is grateful for your support.
