Anthony is 32 years old and married with three children between the ages of 4 and 10 years. He runs a cosmetic business in Masuba in the northern area in Sierra Leone.
He has been in this business since 2001 and sells a variety of cosmetics within a busy market area. He says that the main challenges to his business are transportation problems and storage facilities.
Anthony requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more cream, body shampoo, and hair relaxer for resale. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him increase his business and build a house. In the future, Anthony would like to expand his business more than ever.
