Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is 35 years old and married with two children, ages 6 years and 12 years. He runs a retail shop in Lumley in the western area of Freetown, Sierra Leone. His children are currently attending school. He also takes care of three relatives.

Ibrahim has been in this business for eight years and sells milk, cocoa, bags of rice, soap, batteries and padlocks at his shop. He also earns income from renting out a house. He says that the main challenge to his business is price fluctuation.

He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more bags of rice. Ibrahim says that the extra income from this loan will help him educate his children. In the future, he would like to import goods from abroad.
