Amina's Taifa Group's story

Amina is 24 years old and is a married woman with 2 children, ages 7 and 4 years old. She and her husband also take care of two other people, ages 20 and 19 years old. Amina owns a small cafe, a business she started in 2005. Every day, she works from 8am to 11:30pm at her business and can earn a monthly profit of about $52 from her sales.
