A loan of $350 helped to purchase more wood for expanding her business.


Isatu's story

Isatu is 45 years old and widowed with five children. She runs a retail business in Masuba, Northern area, in Sierra Leone. She started the business to improve herself.

She has been in this business since 1990 and sells wood within her community area. She says that during the rainy season, purchasing power is very slow.

Isatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more wood for expanding her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her solve her family problems and increase her business.

In the future, she would like to expand her business more than ever in the community.
