Mariatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! Meet 41-year-old Mariatu from Goderich branch. She is a widow with four children between the ages of 5 and 17 years old. Three of them are attending school.

Mariatu runs a retail business, selling smoked fish and other assorted items. She started this business to care for herself and support her family and has been in this business for 15 years now. Her other source of income come from her husband’s business. Her main challenge is sometimes slow sales during COVID-19.

Mariatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more fish and other items to increase her business. She says that the extra income generated through this loan will help to improve her business and better take care of her family's welfare.

In the future, Mariatu would like to grow her business to a larger scale. She says thanks to BRAC and Kiva for their support!
