Isatu is 45 years old and married. She has three children between the ages of 10 years and 20 years.
She runs a general stock business in Jui eastern area in Sierra Leone. She's been in this business 20 years and sells soda, milk, cigarettes and biscuits within her community. She says that the main problem for her business is lack of capital to expand her business.
Isatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more soda, milk, cigarettes and biscuits for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and improve her standard of living. In the future, she would like to expand her business more. She is grateful for your support.
