Kadie S's story

Greetings from OIC Ropolo, a small and busy community in northern Sierra Leone.

This is 38-year-old Kadie, a married mother who is blessed with 3 children, all of whom attend school. She has 4 additional dependents, who are relatives from the village.

Kadie sells used clothes within a busy market area. Before starting her own business in 1996, she sold clothes for her parents. She has been a trader all her life. Kadie works 15 hours per day, 6 days per week. She wants to improve her standard of living. She says despite high inflation rates, her business is doing well.

Kadie wants to use this loan to buy bales of used clothes to sell to her customers. She would like to see her business grow in the next 5 years. She very much wants to improve her life and is grateful to BRAC Sierra Leone and the Kiva community for their financial support.
