Meet 38-year-old Kadiatu from O I C Ropolo, Makeni northern area in Sierra Leone. She is married with eight children.
In 2003, Kadiau established her retail business. She began her business so that she would be able to take care of her family's welfare. She works at the business for 10 hours per day and six days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is price inflation and insufficient capital to expand her business.
Kadiatu requires a loan to purchase more onions and general stock to sell.
She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her status of living and increase her business.
In the future, Kadiatu plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
