A loan of $150 helped to buy a variety of plastic bowls to sell.


Mabinty's story

Mabinty is 25 years old and lives in Tombo, which is a rural area west of Freetown. She is single and has one child who is two years old. In 2010, she went into the business of selling plastic bowls. She began her business to help her family live a better life. She works for 10 hours a day, 7 days a week and says that her main challenge is inflation. She is requesting a loan to buy more bowls to sell to her customers. She hopes that the extra income she earns from this loan will allow her to buy a piece of land. Her goal for the future is to expand her business and she is very grateful for the support she receives from Kiva and BRAC Sierra Leone.
