A loan of $400 helped to purchase more timber for resale.

Mabinty's story

Meet 57-year-old Mabinty from Magburaka, Makeni, a southern area in Sierra Leone. She is widowed, with five children.

In 1985, Mabinty established her timber business. She began her business because she wanted to create a source of income to support the home. She works at the business ten hours per day and six days per week. She says that the main challenges to her business are price inflation and insufficient capital to expand her business.

Mabinty requires a loan in order to purchase more timber for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her standard of living and to increase her business.

In the future, Mabinty plans to further expand her business. She thanks you for your support.
