Led by Country Representative Shah Alam (front right) and Tapon Kumar Das (front left), BRAC Sierra Leone has now set up 10 microfinance branches and launched its health, agriculture and livestock programs. I visited the branches in Waterloo and Lunsar on a recent trip. The challenges are enormous in this post-conflict country of roughly 6 million people but the BRAC team is highly motivated to make a difference. A handful of Bangladeshi staff are now working with over 60 staff recruited from Sierra Leone.
