Meet Kadiatu, she is 45 years old and is from Jui eastern area in Freetown. She is married with two children. For the past 25 years, Kadiatu has been running her general stock business. She began her business because she wants to sustain her family's standard of living. She works at the business from 8:00am until 7:00pm, 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand her business.
Kadiatu requires a loan in order to purchase variety of items such as tooth paste, cream and soap, drinks and to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to become successful and increase her business. In the future, Kadiatu plans to build a house. She thanks you for your support.
