Zainab's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 37 year old Zainab from Waterloo 3 branch. She is married with two children between the ages of seven and 13 years old and both are currently attending school. She started her business because she wants to take care of her family.

Zainab runs a retail table business and also sells cosmetics, provisions and other assorted items to her customers around the community. She has been in this business for the past seven years. Zainab says her business is going well without any challenges. Her other source of income is from her husband.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more cosmetics, provisions, sweets, sugar and other assorted items to increase her business. Zainab 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.
