This is 33-year-old Aminata. She is married and has 2 children, aged 8 years (they are twins). She has 1 additional dependent who lives with her because of schooling. In 2010, Aminata established her building materials business. She began her business because she wants to generate income so that she can take proper care of her family. Working 7 days a week and 8 hrs a day, she earns about Le 1,300,000 every month from this business.
Aminata would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000 in order to buy more building materials to resell. In the future, Aminata plans to build a house and import building materials into the country. She thanks you for your support.
