Aminata is 45 years old and married with six children between the ages of 8 and 20. Two of her children go to school. For the past 13 years, Aminata has run a food stand business in Jui eastern area in Freetown where she sells fish, palm oil, pepper, and cooking seasonings. Her main business challenge is inadequate financial capital to expand her business.
Aminata is requesting a loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase cooking material such as palm oil, fish, pepper, and cooking seasonings. She says that the extra income from her loan will help her educate her children and repay her loan. In the future, Aminata would like to renovate her house. She is grateful for your support.
