Meet 45-year-old Mabinty from Tombo Western rural area in Freetown. She is married with 3 children who are between the ages of 10 and 23 years. Two of her children are currently attending school. In 2006, Mabinty established her fish business. She began her business because she needed to generate income to support the home. She works at the business 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. She says that the main challenge to her business is lack of enough capital to run her business.
Mabinty requires a loan in order to buy more fish and palm oil to resell. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and improve her level of living. In the future, Mabinty plans to expand her business even more. She thanks you for your support.
