Isatu Junior
This is 24-year-old Isatu. She is married to a businessman and has three children aged 10, 7, and 5 years; two are school-going children. In 2001, Isatu established her ready-made clothes business. She began her business when she got married and her husband asked her to start her own business so that they could get enough income to support their home.

Working 7 days a week and 9 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,200,000 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 ladies' dresses - 100 pieces @ Le30, 000 and T-shirts - 25 pieces @ Le40, 000. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 300,000. In the future, Isatu plans to open a jewellery shop. Taking out this loan will help as it will enable her to expand her business. She wants her children to attend good schools so that they will become better people in future.
