Ruth's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 36-year-old Ruth from Waterloo 1 branch. She is married with three children between the ages of 2 and 7. Two of them are currently attending school.

Ruth runs a retail table business and sells provisions, cotton materials, and other assorted items to her customers around the community. She started the business because she wants to take care of her family. Her other source of income is from her husband. She has been in this business for the past nine years. Ruth says her business is going well without any challenges.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more cotton materials, provisions, and other assorted items to sell to increase her business. Ruth says that the extra income from this loan will help her to take care of her family and to increase her business.

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