but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more cola nuts and other stock to sell.

Mabinty's story

Meet 50-year-old Mabinty from rural Waterloo in western Freetown. She is married with six children.

In 2006 Mabinty began selling cola nuts and other general stock with the aim of improving her family’s welfare. She works from 8:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. seven days a week. A lack of money to expand her business is her main challenge.

Mabinty is applying for a 900,000 SLL loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more cola nuts and other stock to sell. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and increase her business.

Mabinty hopes to continue expanding her business in the years ahead. She thanks you for your support.
