Fatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 35-year-old Fatu from Waterloo branch. She is married with two children, ages 9 and 13 years old. Both of them are attending school. She started this business to support her family.

Fatu runs a retail business and sells hair extensions, weaves, hair cream, styling gel, and other assorted items. She has been in this business for the past four years. Her other source of income comes from her husband’s business. Her main challenge is slow sales sometimes during this COVID-19 pandemic.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase hair products: hair extensions, hair cream, weaves, styling gel, and other assorted items to increase her business. Fatu says that the extra income from this loan will help to improve her business and her family's welfare.

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