This is 28-year-old Kadiatu. She is married, and has three children aged ten, six, and four. In 2000, Kadiatu established her cooking condiment business. She began her business to help her husband take care of their home. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, she earns about Le 1,800,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan of Le 5,000,000.
Kadiatu has already received and successfully repaid four loans, and now needs a new loan to buy additional cooking condiments. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 300,000. In the future, Kadiatu plans to own a shop, to educate her children to the university level, and to have more motor bikes as transport. She thanks you for your support.
