Aminata's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! Meet 33-year-old Aminata from Wilberforce branch. She is married with five children between the ages of 7 and 18 years old. Two of her children are attending school. She also has two other relatives who depend on her.

Aminata runs a retail business, selling different kinds of drinks and other assorted items to her customers around the community. She started this business to care for her family and has been in business for two years now. Her other source of income comes from her husband’s business. Her main challenge is sometimes slow sales during COVID-19.

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

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