This is 41-year-old Kadiatu. She is married and has 2 children aged 4 and 8. In 2002, Kadiatu established her assorted drinks business. She began her business because she wanted to help her family. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 600,000 every month. She would like a loan of Le 3,000,000 to buy more stock of mega cola, coca cola and other drinks. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 400,000. In the future, Kadiatu plans to educate her children to university level and to use part of her profit to support her husband and to build a house. She thanks you for your support.
