A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase more pipes, electrical cables, hand basins, and other building materials.


Kaprie's story

Kaprie is 46 years old and married with three children, ranging from ages 1 to 17. Two of his children are attending school, and he also supports 4 relatives.

Kaprie runs a building materials shop in Goderich, a part of Western Area in Sierra Leone. He has been in this business for 17 years and sells pipes, electrical cables, pumps, hand basins, and toilet seats. He says that the main challenge to his business is lacking access to more capital to grow and expand.

He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase new products, including nails, cement, and paint, and to stock up on more pipes and electrical cables. Kaprie says that the extra income from this loan will improve the welfare of his family. In the future, he would like to open more building material stores around the city.
