Memuna's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone!

This is 40years old Memuna from Wilberforce branch. She is married with 3 children between the age of 17 and 27 years old. She started this business because she wants to take care of her family.

Memuna runs a local business and sells charcoal, fire wood, palm oil and other assorted items to her customers around the community. Her other source of income is from her husband.

She has been in this business for the past 10 years now. Her main challenge is slow sales sometimes.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more charcoal, wood, palm oil, yams, cassava and other items to increase her business. Memuna says that the extra income from this loan will help her to educate her children.

In the future, she would like to expand her business. She says thanks to BRAC and Kiva for their support.
