A loan of $200 helped to purchase more fish and wood to expand her business.


Amie's story

Amie is 36 years old and married with three children between the ages of 6 and 16 years old. She runs a fish and wood business in Jui, in the eastern area of Freetown. Her children are going to school. She started this business because she did not go to school and she was trained in business.

To earn a living, she’s been in this business for more than 15 years and sells fish and wood within a busy market area. She says that the main challenge to her business is price increases and the slow purchasing power of her customers.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more fish and wood to expand her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and improve her standard of living. In the future, she would like to expand her business to a higher level. She is grateful for your support.
