This is 40-year-old Kadiatu. She is married and has two children aged 15 and 10. She has no additional dependents living with her. Her husband is an air conditioner mechanic.
In 2003, Kadiatu established her drinks and building material business. She began her business after she obtained her first diploma in Business Admin but could not secure a job. Working 6 days a week and 8 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,500,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000.
Kadiatu requires a loan in order to improve her business. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her profit during the festive period. In the future, Kadiatu plans to continue her education to Degree level and to educate her children. She thanks you for your support.
