Fatmata's story

Fatmata is 43 years old and is married with five children, aged between 3 and 24 years old. She runs a general store in Waterloo, an area east of Freetown.

She has been in this business since 2003, and sells bread, soap, palm oil, cigarettes, rice and milk from her home. She also earns income from her domestic garden. She says that the main challenge to her business is transportation.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy different kinds of bread, soap, palm oil, cigarettes, rice and milk to increase her business. She says that the extra income generated from this loan will help her educate her children and buy a plot of land. In the future, she would like to be a distributor. She is grateful for your support.
