Aminata I's story

Meet Aminata, a 26-year-old from Masuba in the northern area of Sierra Leone. She is married with one child.

In 2010, Aminata established her provision business. She desires to empower herself and her family. She was running the business of her parent. She works at the business from 8:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., six days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand her business.

Aminata requires a loan in order to purchase cigarettes, assorted drinks and butter to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to build a house and increase her business. Seemingly distinct businesses are often mixed in Sierra Leone, the idea being that a customer will come to purchase one thing but will leave having purchased another.

In the future, Aminata plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
