Jariatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 45-year-old Jariatu from Hills Station branch. She is married with four children between the ages of ten and 21 years old, all of them attending school.

For the past 25 years Jariatu has had a business selling provisions and other assorted items. She started this business to care for herself and support her family. Her other source of income is from her husband’s business. Her main challenge is slow sales sometimes during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Jariatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more provisions and other assorted items to increase her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help to improve her business and take care of her family’s welfare. She would like to scale up her business someday. She wishes to thank BRAC and Kiva for their support.
