Five Sister Group's story

As a married parent, Aminata works hard to support her family (she is shown here in the middle of the picture). She runs a food business and earns additional income on the side. She has been sustaining her business activities through her daily contributions to her osusu (a small group of people who borrow money on a rotating basis from a communal pot).

Aminata and her group of five members are borrowing 5,000,000 SLL through Kiva's field partner ARD, and of this she is to receive 1,000,000 SLL to pay for an additional two bags of pepper to sell.

Aminata hopes that her hard work will help her to save enough money to provide a secure future for her family. She and her group members thank you for your support.
