Aminata's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 34-year-old Aminata from Wilberforce branch. She is married with three children between the ages of 7 months and 9 years old.

Aminata runs a retail business and sells food items and other assorted items. She has been in this business for the past 5 years. Her other source of income comes from her husband’s salary. Her main challenge is slow sales during this raining season.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase food items; onions, rice, pepper, maggi, palm oil, oil, fish and other assorted items to increase her business. Aminata says that the extra income from this loan will not only help to improve her business but also help in taking care of her family welfare, education and her home. In the future, she would like to have a bigger business. She says thanks to BRAC and Kiva for their support.
