Mary's story

Mary, age 30, is a fish vendor living in Yei. She has been engaged in her business for five years. She and her husband have seven children, six of whom are still in school.

Mary heard about BRAC South Sudan from a credit officer. This is her first loan from BRAC. She has requested a loan in the amount of 600 in order to purchase fish to offer for sale.

She will use the extra income generated from this loan to pay the school fees of her children.
