Salamatu's story

Salamatu is 30 years old and married with one child, age 8. She runs a boutique in Tengbeh town, the western part of Freetown. She takes care of two relatives. Her child is currently attending school. Salamatu has owned this business for five years and sells a variety of leather slippers at her boutique. She also receives income from her husband. She says that the main challenge to her business is rapid inflation of commodities. She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more leather slippers. Salamatu says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase savings and educate her child. In the future, she would like to expand her business more.
