A loan of $1,175 helped to purchase more provisions and assorted drinks.


Ramatu's story

Ramatu is 34 years old and married with 3 children between the ages of 5 and 16. She runs a provisions and assorted drink store in Goderich, a neighborhood in Freetown. She also takes care of 4 relatives as well as their immediate families.

Ramatu has owned this business for 7 years and sells soft drinks, bag sugar, sardine cartons, butter, and stout crates at her store. She also earns income from renting out a house. She says that the main challenge to her business is the transportation and storage of drinks.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more provisions and assorted drinks. Ramatu says that the extra income from this loan will help her to continue to educate her children and improve her standard of living. In the future, she would like to open more branches and invest in another business.
