This is 36-year-old Kadiatu. She is married and has two children aged fourteen and sixteen. In 1992, Kadiatu established her motor bike spares business. She began her business because she wants to help her husband with running the home. Her business is located in the city center and her main customers are mechanics and bike riders.
Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about SLL 1,085,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan of an amount of SLL 3,000,000. Kadiatu requires a loan in order to buy additional engine oil. She hopes that this loan can improve her sales of engine oil.
In the future, Kadiatu plans to develop and have a concrete shop. She also plans to be able to have additional profit and increase the stock. She thanks you for your support.
