Aminata's story

Meet 40-year-old Aminata from Kulanda town Bo in Sierra Leone. She is married with two children between the ages of five and 17. Her children are currently attending school. In 2002, Aminata established her local retail business. She began her business because she wants to generate a permanent source of income to support her family. She works at the business every day from morning to night. She says that the main challenges to her business are competition in the market and lack of enough capital to run her business.

Aminata requires a loan in order to buy more coconuts, bananas, beans, and palm oil. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and pay her children's school fees. In the future, Aminata plans to own a permanent business structure. She thanks you for your support.
