Salamatu is 48 years old and married with 2 children between the ages of 13 and 27. She runs a domestic products business in Tombo Western, a rural area in Sierra Leone.
She has been in this business since 2007 and sells sets of pans and different types of food containers within her community. She says that the main problem for her business is that sometimes purchasing power is very low.
Salamatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more spoons and a variety of food containers for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and have a permanent business location. In the future, she would like to open a big shop. She is grateful for your support.
