Mariatu's story

Mariatu is 41 years old and married with 3 children. She runs a clothing material business in Masuba, Northern area in Sierra Leone. She was a farmer. She started this business because it is easier and profitable. She has been in this business since 1999 and sells different types of wax cotton material within a busy market area. Her business is the only source of income she has. She says that the main challenge to her business is competition in the market. Mariatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more wax cotton material for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her educate her children and increase her business. In the future, she would like to expand her business even more.
