For the past twenty-five years Aminata has sold bulgur, native rice, beans, groundnuts, pepper, etc. from her shop. She works seven days a week, eight hours a day. Her husband also sells beef in the same marketplace. She says that the main challenge to her business is transporting her goods from the countryside to the city.
Aminta has requested a 5,000,000 SLL loan from BRAC Sierra Leone in order to buy more bulgur, native rice, beans, groundnuts and pepper to sell. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 400,000 SLL and allow her to educate her children.
In the future, Aminta plans to expand her business. She appreciates your support.
