Meet 35-year-old Mabinty from the Port Loko Northern area in Sierra Leone. She is married with two children and has two relatives at home. In 2000, Haja established her home product business. She began her business because she needs to create income to improve her standard of living. She works at the business seven days per week, from morning to night. She says that the main challenge to her business is transportation.
Mabinty requires a loan in order to buy radio, cream, spray, and phone accessories for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to pay her children's school fees and also empower herself. In the future, Mabinty plans to grow her business. She thanks you for your support.
