Aminata's story

This is 40 year-old Aminata. She is married and has two children aged ten and four. In 2009, Aminata established her cooking utensil business. The business started to help her husband, who is a miner, to run the affairs of the home. Her business is located in the city center and her main customers are women. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about SLL 2,000,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,000,000. Aminata has already received and successfully repaid one loan, and now requires a new loan in order to pay for additional laundry tubs, enamel spoons, coolers, and food flasks. She hopes that this loan can increase stock and raise profits. In the future, Aminata plans to expand the business to a town out of the city, and she hopes to be able to raise enough profit to educate her children. She thanks you for your support.
