Hardy's story

Hardy is 33 years old and married with two children, ages 5 and 7. He runs a general store in Lumley, a neighborhood in Freetown. He has one employee. Hardy has been in this business for 10 years and sells provisions, rice, soap and soft drinks in his store. He also earns income from a cinema business. He says that the main challenge to his business is price inflation in provision items.

Hardy requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more provision items like milk, soft drinks and soap. Hardy says that the extra income from this loan will help him increase his savings from the profit he will make. In the future, he plans to expand his business.
