This is 37-year-old Isatu. She is married and has two children aged thirteen and seven, plus one additional dependent who lives with her because she is her younger sister. In 2006, Isatu established a plastic bowl business. She began her business because she wanted to be independent. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, she earns about 1,162,200 SLL every month from this business. She would like a loan of 4,000,000 SLL to buy more business stock. Isatu hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately 230,000 SLL. In the future, she plans to build a house and educate her children. She thanks you for your support.
