Kadiatu is 37 years old and married with three children between the ages of eight and 18. For the past ten years, she has run a food stand in the Lunsar Northern area in Sierra Leone, where she sells plastic, onions, Maggie, oil, milk, and sugar. Kadiatu began her business to earn a permanent income and be independent. Her major business challenges are price inflation and the high cost of transportation.
Kadiatu is requesting a loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more plastic, onions, Maggie, oil, milk and sugar. The extra income from her loan will help her to renovate her house and open a savings account. In the future, Kadiatu would like to build a big house. She is grateful for your support.
