Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 42-year-old Mabinty from Jui, in the eastern area of Freetown. She is married with six children. Two of her children are attending school.
Mabinty runs a food business where she sells fried cake, fried chicken and fried fish. She has been running this business for 15 years. She works at the business 10 hours per day throughout the week. Mabinty says that her business is doing well because out of the profit, she feeds her children.
Mabinty has requested a loan in order to buy foodstuff like flour, cooking oil and sugar to expand her business. The extra income from this loan will allow her to take care of her children and pay her children school fees. In the future, she plans to change her business to a provision store. She thanks you for your support!
