Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 35-year-old Isatu from Port Loko. She is married with 6 children. She began her food market because she was trained in this business.
Isatu sells various items from a room in her house; she sells cigarettes, milk, pure water and other drinks. She has been running this business since 2000. Because the business is located in her home, she works all day, everyday. Isatu says that at present her business is doing fine.
Isatu has requested a loan in order to buy more pure water, bagged milk and various drinks. The extra income produced from this loan will allow her to expand her business and take care of her family's needs. In the future, she plans to open another shop. She thanks you for your support!
