Fatmata's story

Fatmata is 26 years old and married with three children, aged between 4 and 10 years old.

She runs a grocery business at her house in Moriba town BO, in Sierra Leone. She got married at a young age to an older man; she decided to start a business because she wanted to create income to support the home.

She's been in this business for four years and sells biscuits, sweets and cigarettes at home. She says that the main challenge to her business is price inflation.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more grocery goods like biscuits, sweets and cigarettes. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and take very good care of her children.

In the future, she would like to expand her business to a shop level. She is grateful for your support.
