Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 42-year-old Mabinty from Lunsar's northern area. She is married with 6 children between the ages of 9 years and 24 years. Her children are currently going to school. She also has 10 additional dependents at home.
Mabinty runs a grocery store selling items at her house; she sells milk, pure water, soda, and biscuits. She has been running this business since 2006. She works at the business throughout the week from morning to night. Mabinty says that her business is doing well because she started with a small amount through BRAC.
Mabinty has requested a loan in order to buy more biscuits, milk, pure water, and drinks to sell. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children. In the future, she plans to open a permanent business residence. She thanks you for your support!
