Rugiatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 50-year-old Rugiatu from Waterloo branch. She is married with four children between the ages of 19 and 27 years. She has three other relatives who depend on her.

Rugiatu runs a retail business selling charcoal in bags to her customers around the community. She has been in this business for the past 20 years. Her other source of income comes from her husband. Her main challenge is slow sales sometimes.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more bags of charcoal to increase her business. Rugiatu says that the extra income from this loan will help to improve her business. In the future, she would like to establish it on a larger scale. She says thanks to Brac and Kiva for their support.
