A loan of $275 helped to purchase more palm oil and bags of gari to sell.


Baby's story

Baby is 46, and married with seven children between the ages of 5 and 23. She runs a palm oil business in Kandeh town Bo, in the southern area of Sierra Leone. She started this business to support her husband and to educate the children.

She's been in this business for 20 years and sells gari at a particular location. She says that the main challenges to her business are difficulties in transporting her goods, and an inadequate business location.

Baby requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more palm oil and bags of gari to sell. She says the extra income from this loan will help her to be responsible for feeding her family, and have a permanent business location.

In the future, she would like to open a local food store enterprise. She is grateful for your support.
