Nancy is 48 years old and married with 2 children between the ages of 16 years and 30 years. She runs a palm oil business in Tombo Western, a rural area near Freetown. She started this business because she wants to generate a permanent source of income.

She has been in this business since 2008 and sells palm oil at her house. She describes her major hardship as inadequate funds to run her business and facing transportation problems.

Nancy requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more native rice and palm oil to expand her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and improve her level of living. In the future, she would like expand her business to a local food store. She is grateful for your support.
