This is 20-year-old Isatu. She is married and has 1 child, a 15-month-old baby. In 2008, Isatu established her jewelry and cosmetics business. She began her business because she was brought up by an aunt who was a business woman. She spent most her time helping her with housework and her business because she lacked an interest in education. Therefore, she grew up to be a business-oriented person with a lot of experience.
Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,196,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Isatu requires a loan in order to purchase more jewelry and cosmetics. In the future, Isatu plans to expand her business and also educate her child to college level. Competition is very high. She thanks you for your support.
