Meet 30-year-old Aminata from Moribatown, Sierra Leone. She is the mother of one child who is a year old. She went into the business of selling plastic slippers in 2008 to earn enough money to survive. She works at her business 10 hours per day and seven days per week, and says that her main challenge is price inflation. Aminata is requesting this loan to buy more plastic slippers to sell so that she can expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to meet this goal as well as pay her child's school fees. In the future, Aminata plans to open a shop. She thanks you for your support.
