Isatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 29-year-old Isatu from Moriba town branch. She is married with one child aged 2 years. She started this business because she wants to take care of her family.

Isatu runs a retail business and sells cosmetics to her customers around the community. She has been in this business for three years. Isatu says her greatest challenge is sometimes business is slow.

She requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase more cosmetics to increase her business. Isatu says that the extra income from this loan will help her to educate her child and to increase her business. In the future, she would like to expand to a large scale. Isatu says thanks to BRAC and Kiva for their support.
