Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 47-year-old Kadiatu from Moriba town Bo. She is widowed with three children between the ages of 18 and 23. Her children are currently attending school.
Kadiatu runs a food stand; she sells rice, pepper, and cooking seasonings. She has been running this business for three years. She works at the business throughout the week and works ten hours per day. Kadiatu says that her business is doing well because out of the profit she is able to take care of her family.
Kadiatu has requested a loan in order to purchase cooking seasonings, rice, and oil for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to repay her loan and increase her business. In the future, she plans to expand her enterprise more than ever. She thanks you for your support!
