This is 27-year-old Kadiatu. She is married and has one child who is three years old.
In 2005, Kadiatu established her business selling milk, sugar, butter, sardines, paste and soft drinks. She began her business because she realised she needed to generate enough income to help her husband provide livelihood for their family.
Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, she earns about 800,000 SLL every month from this business. Kadiatu has a good loan repayment history. She needs a loan of 4,000,000 SLL. Kadiatu requires a loan in order to purchase more goods by cartons for resale. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 250,000 SLL. She thanks you for your support.
