Meet 43-year-old Safiatu from Kulanda town Bo. She is married with 4 children between the ages of 12 years and 18 years. Three of her children are currently attending school. In 1998, Safiatu established her used clothing business. She began her business because she wants to improve the standard of living for her family. She works at the business every day, from morning to evening .She says that the main challenges to her business are insufficient capital and poor road network to her operation area.
Safiatu requires a loan in order to buy more bed cotton, window cotton and different type of clothing material. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to improve the life of her family and give her children a better education. In the future, Safiatu plans to expand her business more. She thanks you for your support.
