Mary's story

Mary is 40 years old and married with three children, ages 14 through 20. All of her children attend school. She also supports two relatives at home.

Mary runs a general merchandise shop in Aberdeen, Sierra Leone and has been in this business for six years. She sells general merchandise such as drinks and bundles of water and has three employees working for her. She also earns income from a commercial taxi that her husband drives. Mary says that the main challenge to her business is inflation.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more drinks and water bundles. Mary says that the extra income from this loan will help improve her family’s standard of living. In the future, she would like to see her business grow.
