Isata       S
Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 20-year-old Isata from Port Loko. She is married with one child. She got married at an early age so she could earn income to support her home.

Isata runs a general store in her house. She sells bags of rice to the community. She has been running this business since 2010. She works at the business throughout the week, from morning to night. Isata says that, at present, her hardship is insufficient capital to run her business.

Isata has requested a loan in order to buy more bags of rice and gallons of oil. The extra income from this loan will allow her to expand her business. In the future, she plans to open a big shop. She thanks you for your support!
