Mariatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 39 year old Mariatu from the Lunsar branch. She is married with three children between the ages of 4 and 17 years old and none of them are not attending school. She started this business because she wants to take care of her family.

Mariatu runs a retail business and sells used clothing to her customers around the community. She has been in this business for 12 years. Mariatu says her greatest challenge is that sometimes business is slow and prices are too expensive.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more used clothing to increase her business. Mariatu says that the extra income from this loan will help her take care of her family and 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.
