Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 33-year-old Kadiatu from Waterloo Eastern area in Freetown. She is widowed with 3 children between the ages of 3 years and 18 years. Two of her children are attending school. She started in business because she dropped out of school and she didn't want to be idle. All of a sudden she lost her husband.
Kadiatu runs a baby clothes operation, selling baby clothes, shoes and baby oil. She has been running this business since 2010. She works at the business every day, twelve hours per day. Kadiatu says that the main challenge to her business is that transporting her goods from the city to her business place is very difficult.
She has requested a loan in order to purchase baby items including baby clothes, shoes and baby oil for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to buy a plot of land and renovate her house. In the future, she plans to open a big shop. She thanks you for your support!
