Aminata is in her early twenties and is single with a two-year-old child. She runs a fish selling business in the Tombo Western rural area in Sierra Leone. She started this business to earn her daily living.
She's been in this business since she left school and she now sells fish within her community. She says that at present her business is doing well because from the profits she has been able to take care of her child and her mother.
Aminata requested this loan through Kiva partner BRAC Sierra Leone in order to purchase more fish to resell. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and have a permanent business location. In the future, she would like to expand her business to a higher level. She is grateful for your support.
