This is 48-year-old Mabinty. She is married and has 3 children aged 18, 15 and 12 years. In 2010, Mabinty established her plastic bowls, beans, bennie, wallah rice and corn flour business. Working 13 hours every day, 7 days a week, she earns about 500,000 SLL every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL in order to purchase more of her plastic bowls, beans, bennie and other items for resale. She will spend the remaining money on transport. In the future, Mabinty plans to educate her children to university level. She thanks you for your support.
