Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 40-year-old Abiatu from Kambia. She is married, with a two-year-old child. She began her business to have a permanent source of income alongside operating a farming as another source of income.

Abiatu runs a home product business. She sells rubber bowls, buckets and food containers. She has been running this business since 2002. She works at the business throughout the week, from morning to night. Abiatu says that her business is going well because she started with a small amount through BRAC.

Abiatu has requested a loan to buy rubber bowls, buckets and food containers. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her status of living.

In the future, she plans to open a big shop. She thanks you for your support!
