This is 28-year-old Isata, a married mother of three children aged seven, four, and two years. In 2007, Isata established her plastic dishes business both to earn a living and to enhance her independence. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about Le 720,000 each month.

Isata is now requesting a loan of Le 3,000,000 to buy plastic dishes. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 350,000.

In the future, Isata plans to own a house and to rent a store in a more strategic area. She thanks you for your support.
