A loan of $125 helped to buy soda, milk, cigarettes, and biscuits to offer for sale.


Hannah's story

Hannah, age 40, runs a general merchandise business. She lives with her husband and their two children in Tombo, which is in a western rural area of Sierra Leone.

Hannah has been engaged in her business since 2008. In her store, she sells such items as soda, milk, cigarettes, and biscuits. She says that the main obstacle she faces is lack of sufficient capital to expand her business.

Hannah has requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone in order to buy soda, milk, cigarettes, and biscuits to offer for sale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and improve her family's standard of living.

In the future, she would like to buy a plot of land.

She is grateful for your support.
