Osman's story

Osman is 43 years old and married with three children, ages 3 years to 21 years. He runs a fish business in Tombo Western rural area in Sierra Leone. One of his children is going to school and he has four additional dependents at home.

He has been in this business since 2001 and sells fish in the provinces. He says that the main challenge to his business is delay in transporting his goods.

Osman requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more cartons of fish for resale. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him to educate his children and increase his business. In the future, he would like to have a fishing boat. He is grateful for your support.
