Mabinty's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 36-year old Mabinty. She is marred with four children, between the ages of 4 and 13. All of her children currently go to school.

Mabinty sells rice in Waterloo, just outside of the capital Freetown. She started her business 9 years ago. She stopped going to school during the war and could not return to her studies afterwards. Therefore, she decided to start her own business. She works at her business 11 hours per day, 7 days a week. The biggest challenge to her business is the transport and storage of rice.

She requested the loan to purchase more rice and other food stuff for her business. She hopes to improve the living conditions of her family and increase her business. One day, she wants to expand to a bigger wholesale shop and have employees and more clients. She greatly appreciates your support!
