A loan helped to purchase more traditional clothes to expand her business.


Aminata's story

Meet Aminata. She is 40-year-old from Jui, Western rural area, in Freetown in Sierra Leone. She is married with six children. For more than 10 years, Aminata has established her traditional clothes business. She began her business because she wanted to take care of her family's welfare. She works at the business from 8:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., six days per week. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and insufficient capital to expand her business. Aminata requires a loan in order to purchase more traditional clothes to expand her business. Seemingly distinct businesses are often mixed in Sierra Leone, the idea being that a customer will come to purchase one thing, but will leave having purchased another. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to take care of her family's welfare and increase her business. In the future, Aminata plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
