Mariatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 35-year-old Mariatu from Wilberforce branch. She is a single businesswoman who started this business to support her family.

Mariatu runs a retail business selling rice, palm oil, and other assorted items. She has been in this business for the past 5 years. Her other source of income is her official day's work. Her main challenge is that sales have sometimes been slow during the COVID-19 pandemic.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase rice, palm oil, pepper, onions, maggi and other assorted items. Mariatu says that the extra income from this loan will help her to improve her business and take care of her family.

In the future, Mariatu would like to expand her business. She thanks BRAC and Kiva for their support.
