Bo, Sierra Leone / Food Market

A loan of $1,150 helped to buy drinks for her business.


Binta's story

This is 51-year-old Binta. She is a widow and has three children, ages 12, 20, and 22. She has one additional dependent who lives with her to help with the household chores.

In 1994, Binta established her business selling provisions and beverages. She began her business because she wanted to be self-reliant after losing her husband. Her business is located in the outskirts and her main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about 2,000,000 SLL every month from this business.

She would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL. Binta has already received and successfully repaid six loans. She now requires a new loan in order to buy additional drinks. She hopes that this loan can improve her inventory and increase her profits. In the future, Binta plans to expand the business to wholesale. She thanks you for your support.
