Aminata is in her late twenties and married with two children, ages four and ten years. She runs a fish business in Tombo, in a Western rural area of Sierra Leone. She started this business to finance her daily living.
She's been in this business since 2007 and sells fish within her community. She says that at present her business is doing well, and out of the profits, she was able to take care of her parents.
Aminata requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more fish for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and acquire a permanent business location. In the future, she would like to become a successful businesswoman. She is grateful for your support.
