Meet 41-year-old Aminata, from Waterloo2, in the Western Rural area in Freetown. She is married and has four children. In 2010, Aminata established her slippers-selling business. She began her business, because she wanted to develop herself and her children. She works at the business from 8:00am until 5:30pm, seven days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand.

Aminata requires a loan, in order to purchase a variety of plastic slippers for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will enable her to educate her children and increase her business. In the future, Aminata plans to expand her business to a higher level. She thanks you for your support.
