This is 37 year-old Isatu B. S.. She is married, and has 3 children ages 2, 7, and 9, years. In 2009, Isatu established her baby items business. She began her business because she wanted to generate income and help her husband to provide livelihood for their family. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 300,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,000,000. Isatu requires a loan in order to buy the following goods for her business - Baby shirts, pants, powder, Vaseline etc. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 250,000. In the future, Isatu plans to buy larger quantities to supply to other traders and open another stall. She thanks you for your support.
