Safiatu is 29 years old, married and the mother of two children who are 3 and 5 years old. She earns an income by selling food in the Jui area east of Freetown. She began her business as a way to improve her family's living conditions. She's been in this business for nine years and sells gari salad and chicken out of her home. She says that the main challenge to her business is price inflation. She is requesting a loan from BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more gari, cooking oil and mayonnaise. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her educate her children and expand her business. In the future, she would like to continue expanding her business. She is grateful for your support.
