Fatmata is 41 years old with six children, ages 3 years to 21 years. She runs a clothing enterprise in Waterloo Eastern area in Freetown. Her children are going to school. She began this business because she was a housewife and she wanted to stop sitting at home; instead she wanted to earn her own income.
She's been in this business for 20 years and sells jeans, T-shirts and underwear. She says that despite the challenges, she is a very hardworking woman and desires to educate her children.
Fatmata requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase jeans, T-shirts and underwear. She says that the extra resulting income will help her to increase her business and improve their standard of living. In the future, she would like to build her own shop and expand her business more than even. She is grateful for your support.
