A loan of $1,175 helped to buy more local food stuff such as palm oil, tomatoes and salt.

Kadiatu's story

Kadiatu is 33 years old and married with three children, ages seven to 13. She runs a local food store in Goderich, in the western area of Freetown, Sierra Leone. Her 3 children attend school. She also has five additional dependent that live with her because they are relatives.

Kadiatu has operated a food store business for 17 years and sells palm oil, native rice, onions and other items. She began this business because she wanted to generate enough income to support her family. Kadiatu says her main challenge is a lack of funds to invest in her business.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more local food, such as palm oil, tomatoes and salt.

Kadiatu says the extra income will help her educate her children and improve their home welfare. In the future, she would like to open more stores in town. She is grateful for your support.
