This is Isatu who is 26 years old. She is married and has two children aged 10 and 3 years. She has one additional dependent living with her. In 2008, Isatu established her provisions, school uniform, slippers, and foodstuff business. She began her business because she wanted to raise funds to pay her fees to further her education. Working seven days a week and six hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,000,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Isatu requires a loan in order to buy more provisions, uniform materials, and slippers for her business. In the future, Isatu plans to help her husband build a house for their family and educate her children to university level. She thanks you for your support.
