Aminata is 40 years old and married, with four children, ages between one and four years. She runs a fish business in Tombo, a western, rural area in Sierra Leone. She started this business as her daily living.
Aminata has been in her business since 2000, selling fish within her community. She says that, at present, her business is doing well because, out of the profits, she is able to take care of her family.
Aminata requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone Microfinance Company Limited to buy more fish for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and have a permanent business location.
In the future, Aminata would like to expand her business to a higher level. She is grateful for your support.
