Kadiatu's story

Meet 25-year-old Kadiatu from Looking Town branch. She is a married woman with three children between the ages of 2 and 6 years old.

Kadiatu runs a retail business and sells rice, palm oil, maggie, oil, beans, bennie and other items to her customers around the community. She has been in this business for the past 5 years now and works 10 hours per day and 7 days a week. Her main challenge is slow sales during the rainy seasons.

Kadiatu requested this loan from BRAC to purchase more rice, palm oil, maggie, oil, beans, bennie and other items to increase her business. She says that the extra income from this loan will help to educate her children and to take care of her family. In the next 5 years she wants to expand to a big shop.
