This is 46-year-old Aminata. She is married and has two children aged 26 and 22 years. In 1985, Amie established her used clothing business. She began her business because she believed this can be a means for getting income to provide support to her children. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 430,000 SLL every month from this business. She needs a loan of 3,000,000 SLL.
Aminata requires a loan in order to buy more bales of used clothing. In the future, Amie plans to educate her children and to buy a plot of land. She thanks you for your support.
