but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy more cosmetics, spray, roll-on, body splash, powder, soap and palm oil for Fatu to sell.


Fatu's story

This is forty-year-old Fatu from Waterloo Branch. She is married with five children between the ages of 22 and ten years.

Fatu established a toiletries business fifteen years ago and sells such products as spray, roll-on, body splash, powder and soap to her customers. She works six hours a day, six days a week. Her family’s other source of income is from her husband’s work. She says her business is not facing any challenges.

Fatu requested this loan from Kiva's field partner BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more cosmetics, spray, roll-on, body splash, powder, soap and palm oil, which will increase her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help to pay fees for her children.

In the next five years Fatu would like to see her business develop and expand. She says thanks and sends her appreciation to BRAC Sierra Leone and the Kiva community for their support.
