A loan of $1,175 helped to purchase more soft drinks, Heineken and bottled wine.


Samuel's story

Samuel is 28 years old and single with no child with him. He runs a general merchandise store in Lumley near a neighborhood in Freetown.

Samuel has owned this business for three years and sells soft drinks, bottle wined, Heineken and Cody’s in his store. His business is the only source of income he has. He says that the main challenge to his business is the lack of electricity/power supply.

He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more items like soft drinks, Heineken and bags of rice. Samuel says that the extra income from this loan will help him increase his savings and maximize profit. In the future, he would like to open a supermarket. .
