This is 40-year-old Aminata. She is married and has two children, age 13 and 11 years old. She has one additional dependent who lives with her to attend school due to lack of financial support.
Aminata works seven days a week and 10 hours each day in her food market. She earns about SLL 1,400,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 6,000,000. Aminata has already received and successfully repaid her first loan and now requests a new loan in order to purchase more drinks.
Aminata plans to send her children to university. She thanks you for your support.
