Kema's story

Kema is 34 years old and married with four children between the ages of seven and 21. Three of her children go to school and she has one additional dependent at home. For the past eight years, Kema has run a food stand in Kandeh town, Bo Southern area in Sierra Leone where she sells palm oil, gari, and rice. She also receives income from her brother. Kema's main business challenges are the slow purchasing power of her customers and transportation costs.

Kema is requesting a loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more general stock such as palm oil, rice, and gari. The extra income from her loan will help her increase her business and pay her children's school fees. In the future, Kema would like to expand her business. She is grateful for your support.
