A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase boutique items, such as shoes, bags, and dresses.

Salamatu's story

Salamatu is 43 years old and married with three children between the ages of 15 and 20. She runs a boutique in Tengbeh Town, just outside of Freetown. Salamatu has been in this business for five years and sells shoes, bags, clothes, and hair products at her store. Her business helps increase her savings and improve the family income. Salamatu says that her main business challenge is inflation.

Salamatu is requesting a loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more boutique items. She says that the extra income from her loan will help her educate her children. In the future, Salamatu would like to continue to expand her business.
