Brima's story

Brima is 47 years old and married with five children, ages between 1 and 18. He runs a liquor retail store in Lumley, a neighborhood in Freetown.

Brima has been in this business for seven years and sells Pegapaks, Royal Stouts, Black Label and other types of alcohol at his store. He also earns income from transportation (truck). He says that the main challenge to his business is, it takes time for the stock to reach him (delay of stock).

He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase a variety of liquor to stock. Brima says that the extra income from this loan will help him educate his children. In the future, he would like to import liquor from overseas.
