Greetings from rural Waterloo in northern Freetown! This is Kadiatu, a local married woman. Kadiatu has three children. Two of Kadiatu’s children are still going to school.
Kadiatu sells over-the-counter medicines in a busy market place. She started this business in 2003 to help her children have a better standard of living. She works from 8am to 5pm each day.
Kadiatu is a well-regarded member of BRAC Sierra Leone, having already taken out and paid back four loans which she used to develop her business.
She wants to use this loan to buy more medicines to sell in the market. In the future, she would like to have her own drug store to sell more products and reach more customers. She is thankful for your support.
