This is 48-year-old Kadiatu. She is married and has 3 children, aged 30, 26 and 20.

In 2002, Kadiatu established her motor vehicle spare parts business. She began her business because there was no one to take care of her schooling. Working 7 days a week and 9 hours a day, she earns about Le 980,000 every month from this business.

Kadiatu would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000 in order to buy more spare parts, like oil filters, clutch plates and engine oil, in a very large quantity. In the future, Kadiatu plans to open a bigger outlet to be managed by her husband. She thanks you for your support.
