Adama is 42 years old and is married with five children aged between 6 and 25 years old. She runs a local food in the Waterloo Western rural area in Sierra Leone. Three of her children are currently going to school.
She has been in business for 25 years now and sells food made with rice and sugar. She says that the main problem for her business is a lack of capital to expand her business.
Adama requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more rice and sugar to expand her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and pay her childrens' school fees. In the future, she would like to buy a plot of land. She is grateful for your support.
