Sylvester's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 40 years old Sylvester from Moriba town branch Bo. He is single with a 5 years old child, currently attending school. He started this business because he wants to improve himself.

Sylvester runs a Retail table Business and sells used clothing to his customers around the community. His other source of income is from his wife. He has been in this business for 15 years. Sylvester says his greatest challenge is very slow transportation and covid-19 which has effected the country.

He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more used clothing to increase his business. Sylvester says that the extra income from this loan will help him to take care of his family and to increase his business. In the future, he would like to expand to a larger scale. He says thanks to Brac and Kiva for their support.
