This is Isata. She is 35, married, and has three children, aged 15, 12, and 8. In 2000, Isata established her rice and local foodstuffs business in the city center. Isata started her business because she wanted to help her husband to take care of the home with her own financial contribution. Working six days a week and nine hours a day, she earns about 1,000,000 SLL every month.

Isata would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL to buy 40 bags of rice. She hopes that this loan will help her increase her profits. In the future, Isata plans to rent a bigger shop. She thanks you for your support.
