Mariatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone!

This is 52 years old Mariatu from Wilberforce branch. She is married with four children between the ages of 13 and 34 years old and one of her children is still attending school. She is also a caretaker for three of her relatives.

Mariatu runs a retail business and sells provisions, drinks and other assorted items. She has been in this business for 16 years. Her other source of income come from her husband’s business. Her main challenge is slow sales sometimes during this COVID 19.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase provisions, milk, sugar, mayonnaise, Ovaltine, cocoa, drinks and other assorted item to increase her business. Mariatu says that the extra income from this loan will help to improve her business and take care of her family.

In the future, she would like to establish into a larger scale. She says thanks to BRAC and Kiva for their support.
