Sarah's story

Sarah is 35 years old and married, with four children between the ages of 5 years and 18 years. She runs a cookery shop in Kandeh town Bo, Southern area in Sierra Leone.

She's been in this business for eight years and sells cooked food and pure water in her neighborhood. She started this business because she wants to create a source of living. She says, at present, cookery is the best business for her because they get their daily food out of the cookery sales.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more foodstuff, like rice, cooking oil, and cooking seasonings, in order to expand her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her improve her standard of living. In the future, she would like to expand her business to the shop level. She is grateful for your support.
