Isata's story

Greetings from OIC Ropolo, a community near the small and busy northern area of Sierra Leone. This is 34-year-old Isata, a married mother who is blessed with 2 children between the ages of 2 and 13 years.

Isata sells bales of used clothes within a busy market area. Previously, she was selling for her parent; she has been trader all her life. She started her business in 2010. Isata works 12 hours per day, 6 days per week. She desires to take care of herself and develop her business. She says that despite the high inflation of the dollar, her business is doing well.

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