Isatu's story

Isatu S. sells African textiles (lace and cotton) and local food, such as groundnuts and garri, a couscous-like grain made from grated cassava (manioc). She is married and rents a shop at a shopping centre called Roma Market. She has spent 15 years of her life in trading (selling goods). Her husband is also a trader.

She has 15 dependants, including her three children, who are in primary school. She normally goes to Guinea to sell to sell her food and, on the way back, she buys African textiles to sell in her shop.

Isatu is seeking a loan to cope with the high foreign exchange rate so that she can increase her inventory and meet her customer's demands. She hopes to use the proceeds of this loan to feed and pay the school fees of her children and dependents.
