Musu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 44 year old Musu from the Moriba Town Bo branch. She is divorced with five children between the ages of 8 and 25 years old. Three of them are currently attending school. She started this business because she wants to empower herself and take care of her family.

Musu runs a retail table business and sells local products to her customers around the community. Her other source of income is from her husband. She has been in this business for 11 years. Musu says her greatest challenge is inflation, the high cost of transportation and the Covid-19 pandemic which has affected the country.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more local products like rice, groundnuts, benne, and peppers to increase her business. Musu 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.
