This is 25-year-old Aminata. She is married and has no children.

In 2006; Aminata established her ready-made clothing business. She began her business because she had gained experience from her mother and she wanted to be independant. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 950,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000.

Aminata has already received and successfully repaid two loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional bedspreads and baby pants, etc. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 200,000.

In the future, Aminata plans to complete her building and to develop her business. She thanks you for your support.
