Aminata
This is 36-year-old Aminata, a married mother of a 10-year-old attending school. She has three additional dependents who live with her to assist in household work and business.



In 2003, Aminata established her baby clothing and toiletries business. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,033,000 every month. Having already received and repaid a loan, Aminata is requesting a loan for Le 4,500,000 to buy flasks - 20 pieces, bathing bowls - 30 pieces, pampers - 10 cartons, powdered - 24 pieces, Vaseline - 24 pieces, baby walker - 5 pieces, baby's wear - 50 pieces and baby panties - 50 pieces.



Aminata has not opened a shop because of the high cost of rent; instead she concentrates on improving her business. Her living standard has improved, and she thanks you for your support.
