Fanny's story

Fanny is 25 years old, married, and has one child. She runs a general stock business in Magbukara, Sierra Leone, selling different types of clothing material in the market area, which she has been doing for 13 years. Her business is the only source of income she has. Her main challenges to her business are insufficient capital and improper business location.

Fanny is requesting a loan from BRAC Sierra Leone, which she will use to purchase more clothing material to sell. The extra income from this loan will help her educate her child and increase her business. In the future, she would like to expand her business.
