Aminata is 29 years old and married with 3 children between the ages of 2 years and 15 years. She runs a cookery business in the Jui Eastern area in Freetown. She has been in this business for 11 years, selling local food within her community. She says that her main business challenge is occasionally slow purchasing power.
Aminata requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more seasonings, rice, and cooking oil for resale. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her to increase her business and educate her children. In the future, she would like to expand her business more than ever. She is grateful for your support.
