Please meet 38 year old Sabina from Sierra Leone. She is married with 2 children, the youngest is 6 years old; both children are in school. She is also caring for three relatives.
Sabina has been selling drinks, coal, biscuits, palm oil, and other miscellaneous products from her home since 1994. She works at her business from 7am to 11pm, 7 days a week.
She requests this loan from BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more items for her business, including biscuits, palm oil, and coal.
She wants her children to be educated, and to take her business to an international level. She says that transportation and lack of reliable electricity to keep her drinks cool are her two main challenges.
She will use the extra income generated from the loan to pay school fees. She thanks you for your support!
