This is 46-year-old Kadijatu. She is married with three children aged 26,18 and 9. She has two additional dependents who live with her for assistance. In 2009, Kadijatu established her grocery business. She began her business because she wants to help her husband taking care of the home. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, she earns about Le800,000 every month. She would like a loan in the amount of Le4,000,000 to buy more types of drinks and other merchandise. She plans to use the remaining money on transportation. In the future, Kadijatu plans to build a house on a plot of land and improve her business. She thanks you for your support.
