Neneh is 41 years old and married with five children between 6 months and 18 years old. She runs a provisions store in Goderich near Freetown.
Neneh has been in this business for 20 years and sells milk, soft drink, Ovaltine, toiletries and sugar at her store. Her business is the only source of income she has. She says that the main challenge to her business is price inflation.
She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more provisions. Neneh says that the extra income from this loan will help her life improve with the profit she will make. In the future, she would like to expand her business more.
