Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 42-year-old Isata from Kandehtown Bo, a married mother of five children between the ages of 8 and 20 years, all currently attending school. She began her business because she wants to develop herself and the family.

For 10 years now, Isata has been operating a palm oil business, selling her product by the gallon. She works thoughout the week, and earns additional income from small-scale farming in the village. Isata says that her business is doing well, and she is acquiring new customers everyday.

Isata has requested a loan to buy more palm oil to resell. The extra income arising from this loan will allow her to improve her family status. In the future, she plans to open a food commodities store. She thanks you for your support!
