Alieu's story

Alieu is a 23-year-old single parent with a 4-year-old son. He runs a general store at Waterloo eastern area in Freetown, Sierra Leone. He began his business because he wants to have a permanent source of income to support his family. Before, he was a shopkeeper. He's been in this business for five years and sells soft drinks, milk, bread, luncheon meat, biscuits, and butter. His business is the only income he has. He described his major problem as competition in the market and price inflation. He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more general stock items like soft drinks, milk, bread, luncheon meat. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him start a savings account and educate his child. In the future, he would like to expand his business to a wholesale level.
