A loan helped to purchase more rubber bowls in bulk to increase her business.


Marian's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is Marian, a 39-year-old woman from Aberdeen. She is married with 4 children.

Marian runs a rubber bowl business in a market place in Aberdeen, where she sells different kinds of rubber bowls in small and in large quantities to her customers. She has been in this business for the past 10 years now. She works 12 hours per day and 6 days a week. Her main challenge to her business is slow sales sometimes.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more rubber bowls in bulk to increase her business. Marian says that the extra income from this loan will help to educate her children and improve her life, too. In the future, she would like to see her business grow to a big shop. She thanks BRAC and Kiva for their support.
