A loan of $175 helped to purchase soda, milk, cigarettes and biscuits for resale.


Isatu's story

Isatu is 30 years old and married, with 4 children between the ages of 3 and 13 years. She runs a general merchandise business in Tombo, a western rural area in Sierra Leone. She began her business to strive for a better living.

She’s been in this business since getting married and sells soda, milk, cigarettes and biscuits within her community. She says that the main problem with her business is a lack of capital to expand.

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 open a big provision shop. She is grateful for your support.
