Zainab's story

Zainab is 40 years old and married with 3 children between 5 years and 10 years old. She runs a general store in Tombo, a rural area in western Sierra Leone. To earn a living, she’s been in this business since 2008 and sells soda, milk, cigarettes and biscuits in her community. She says that the main problem for her business is a lack of capital to expand her business. Zainab has requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more soda, milk, cigarettes and biscuits for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her to increase her business and pay her children’s school fees. In the future, she would like to buy a plot of land. She is grateful for your support.
