Aminata's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! Meet 29-year-old Aminata from Wilberforce Branch. She is married with two children between the ages of 6 and 8 years old. Both of her children are going to school. Aminata is also a caretaker for one of her relatives.

Aminata sells fruits, including banana, mango, pineapple, apple, guava, and other assorted items. She has been in this business for five years. Other income comes from her husband’s business. Her main challenge is slow sales, especially during COVID 19.

Aminata requested a loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase fruits, food stuffs and other assorted items to increase her business. She says that this loan will help to improve her business and the extra income earned will help her take care of her family.

In the future, Aminata would like to grow her business. She says thanks to BRAC and Kiva for their support!
