Greetings from Bo, Sierra Leone! Namina is 47 years old, married with four children. She sells groundnuts at a big market in Kulandah Town.

She works at her business for 12 hours per day, 7 days per week. She went into business because her parents could not afford to educate her. Now, she has two employees working in her business. The biggest challenge in her business is that sometimes the groundnuts get spoilt.

Namina requested this loan to buy more groundnuts to expand her business. In five years, she wants to finally own a shop. This loan will help her educate her children with the proceeds of her business. She appreciates your support!
