Meet 30-year-old Isatu from Tombo in the Western Area Rural District near Freetown. She is married with two children between the ages of 5 years and 8 years old. Her children are currently attending school. After she got married, Isatu established her rice business. She began her business because she needs to create income to support the home. She works at the business 10 hours per day and 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is lack of enough capital to run her business. Isatu requires a loan in order to buy a bag of rice for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and establish a permanent business location. In the future, Isatu plans to own a big shop. She thanks you for your support.
