Salamatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 36-year-old Salamatu from Aberdeen branch. She is married with two children between the ages of 9 and 12 years old and both of them are attending school. She started her business to care for herself and support her family.

Salamatu runs a retail business and sells cotton materials and other assorted items. She has been in this business for 5 years now. Her other source of income comes from her husband’s business. Her main challenge is slow sales sometimes during COVID 19.

Salamatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase cotton materials and other assorted items to increase her business. Salamatu says the extra income from this loan will help to improve her business and take care of her family welfare.

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