A loan of $575 helped buy a freezer.

Aminata's story

Mrs. Aminata C. is 35 years old and the mother of four children. She lives with her children and her husband in the North Hérémakono borough of Bougouni (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali).

Having quit school at an early age, she became quickly interested in revenue-generating activities, such as buying and selling soap, and currently the preparation and sale of ice pops and non-alcoholic beverages.

Having fully reimbursed her first loan, she is now requesting a second loan to buy a freezer. She resupplies in Bamoko (capital of the Republic of Mali) and sells mainly from her home, but also through home delivery, to a varied and diverse customer base.

She hopes this loan will help her attain monthly earnings of 65,000 FCFA she will use to expand her business.
