Fatmata's story

Fatmata is 40 years old and married with three children, between 6 and 25 years of age. She runs an electronics appliance store in Fullahtown in the central part of Freetown. She has two employees working with her. She also takes care of three relatives as well as her immediate ones.

Fatmata has been in this business for three years and sells televisions and DVD sets at her store. She also earns income from a taxi business. She says that the main challenges to her businesses are insufficient capital and variation in price.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more electronic appliances. Fatmata says that the extra income from this loan will help her educate her children. In the future, she would like to expand her business and import more appliances.
