Kadiatu is 45 years old and married with six children between the ages of 8 and 20. Two of her children go to school. She runs a food stand business in Jui, the eastern area in Freetown.
She's been in this business for seven years and sells fish, palm oil, pepper and seasonings. She says that the main challenge to her business is inadequate financial resources to expand her business.
Kadiatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase cooking materials including palm oil, fish, pepper and seasonings. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her educate her children and repay her loan. In the future, she would like to renovate her house. She is grateful for your support.
