Isatu  Amadu
This is 40-year-old Isatu. She is married and has three children aged 22, 20 and 16 years old. She has two additional dependents who live with her as adopted children. In 2004, Isatu established her assorted-goods business. She began her business because she wanted to be self-reliant and not need her husband's support. Working six days a week and eight 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 3,000,0000. Isatu requires a loan in order to buy goods worth SLL 3,000,000. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately SLL 800,000. In the future, Isatu plans to open another sales center for one of her adopted children who has now matured. She thanks you for your kind support.
