Aminata is 36 years old, married, and the mother of two children aged 8 and 18 years. She runs a general merchandise business selling soda, milk, cigarettes and bread in her community in the Tombo Western rural area of Sierra Leone. She started this enterprise in 2006 because she wanted to try to improve her and her family's welfare. Reduced purchasing power during the rainy season is her main obstacle.

Aminata has requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more soda, milk, cigarettes and biscuits for resale. She says that the extra income arising from this loan will help her increase her business and improve her standard of living. In the future, she would like to buy a plot of land. Aminata is grateful for your support.
