Meet 37-year-old Kadie from Torkpoi town Bo. She is married, with two children, between the ages of 2 years and 15 years. Her children are currently attending school.
In 2005, Kadie established her palm oil business. She began her business because she wants to get a permanent source of income. She works at the business six days per week, nine hours per day. She says that the main challenge to her business is sometimes the business is very difficult to operate because of price inflation.
Kadie requires a loan in order to buy more gari and palm oil. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and buy electronic items for her personal use. In the future, Kadie plans to build a house and expand her business. She thanks you for your support.
