Greeting from Sierra Leone. This is 35-year-old Isatu who lives in Kandeh town. She is married and the mother of four children who range in age from 5 to 18 years old. All of her children currently attend school. She earns a living by selling slippers and clothes. She has been in this business for eight years, and works every day of the week from morning to night. Her business is the only source of income she has, and her main challenge is a lack of capital. Isatu has requested a loan to buy more rubber slippers to sell. The extra income made possible by this loan will allow her to increase her capital and improve her living standards. In the future, she plans to expand her business by opening a store. She thanks you for your support
