Idrissa's story

Idrissa is 52 years old and married with 8 children, aged 11 to 25. Six children are currently attending school.

Idrissa runs a provision-and-assorted-foodstuffs store in Goderich, a neighborhood in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone. He has owned this business for 4 years and sells batteries, sugar, mayonnaise, soft drinks, rubber drinks, and tea leaves. He also earns income from a small-scale fishing boat at sea. He says that the main challenge to his business is transportation.

Idrissa requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more provisions and assorted foodstuffs. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him educate his children. In the future, he plans to build a house and open another branch of his store.
