Jestina's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 50-year-old Jestina from Wilberforce Branch. She is a single parent with two children who are 13 and 18. For ten years, Jestina has run a business where she sells food items such as palm oil, Bennie, maggi and other assorted items. She started her business to care for her family. Jestina's main business challenge is slow sales during the raining season.

Jestina is requesting a loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase items such as palm oil, Bennie, oil, fish, maggi, peppers, onions and other assorted items. She will use her loan to improve her business and help take care of her family's welfare, education and their home. In the future, Jestina would like to expand her business. She thanks BRAC and Kiva lenders for their support.
