This is 28-year-old Aminata. She is married and has two children, aged 3 and 1. She has two additional dependents who live with her because they are assistants. In 2012, Aminata established her mayonnaise, Peak milk, sardines, drinks, etc., business. She began her business because she wanted to help her husband in taking care of the home. Her business is located in the outskirts of town, and her main customers are the general community people.
Working seven days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about 800,000 Le (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Aminata requires a loan in order to buy drinks, Peak milk, etc., for resale. In the future, Aminata plans to develop her business, educate her children and to erect a house. She thanks you for your support.
