Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 32-year-old Aminata from Waterloo2, Eastern area in Freetown. She is married and blessed with three children. Two of her children are attending school.

Aminata runs a food stand business at home. She sells rice, onions and cooking seasonings. She has been running this business since 2005. She works at the business throughout the week, from morning to night. Aminata says that the main challenge to her business is the price of transportation and insufficient finances to expand her business.

Aminata has requested a loan in order to buy more cooking items like rice, onions and seasonings. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children and increase her business. In the future, she plans to expand her business. She thanks you for your support!
