Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 35-year-old Mabinty from Rokupr from Northern area. She is married with 4 children between the ages of 2 years and 12 years. She began this business because she wanted to generate her own source of income to support the home.
She runs a business of selling general stock items at her house. She sells cigarettes, milk, mayonnaise, pure water and drinks. She has been running this business for the past 5 years. She works at the business throughout the week from morning to night. Mabinty says that at present her business is doing fine.
She has requested a loan in order to buy more pure water, biscuits and drinks. The extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and take care of her family's welfare. In the future, Mabinty plans to expand her business more. She thanks you for your support!
