This is 39-year-old Isatu. She is married and has three children who are 19, 15 and 12 years old. In 2008, Isatu established her groundnut business. She began her business because she wanted to be gainfully employed by herself to meet her daily needs and wants. Working 6 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,500,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan of Le 3,000,000. Isatu requires a loan to buy more bags of groundnuts. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 600,000. In the future, Isatu plans to save enough money to enhance the quality of education for her children. She thanks you for your support.
