Meet 60-year-old Isatu, from Tombo Western rural area in Freetown. She is widowed and has 4 children. Isatu established her local food business because she didn’t want to depend on her children. She works at the business 10 hours per day and 7 days per week moving around the community to sell her goods. She says that the main challenge is a lack of enough capital to run her business.

Isatu requires a loan in order to buy more cooking commodities to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and improve her standard of living. In the future, Isatu plans to own a big shop. She thanks you for your support.
