Fatmata's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 33-year-old Fatmata from Wilberforce branch. She is a married woman who started this business to care for herself and support her family.

Fatmata runs a retail business selling cakes, drinks, and other assorted items. She has been in this business for 7 years now. Her other source of income is from her husband’s business. Her main challenge is slow sales sometimes due to COVID-19.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more drinks, flour, sugar, flavours, and other assorted items to increase her business. Fatmata says that the extra income from this loan will help to improve her business and take care of her family's welfare. In the future, she would like to establish her business on a larger scale. She says thanks to BRAC and Kiva for their support.
