Aminata's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 29 years old Aminata from Dwarzak branch. She is married and a mum of one child aged 1 year. She started this business because she wants to take care of her family.

Aminata runs a retail business and sells used clothing and other assorted items to her customers around the community. She has been in this business for 10 years. Aminata says her greatest challenge is that business is slow and prices too high.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more used clothing and other items: cups, plates, spoons to increase her business. Aminata says that the extra income from this loan will help her to take care of her family and to increase her business. In the future, she would like to expand to a larger scale. She says thanks to Brac and Kiva for their support.
