This is 38-year-old Kadiatu. She is married and has two children, aged 15 and 11 years.
In 2000, Kadiatu established her bundle water business. She began her business to assist her husband in the running of the home. Her business is located in the outskirts of the city, and her main customers are men and women. Working 7 days a week and 15 hours a day, she earns about Le 500,000 every month from this business.
Kadiatu would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,000,000. She requires a loan in order to purchase bundles of water from the factory for resale by retailing. She hopes that this loan will increase her stock level and she will be able to access more profits, hence her business will grow.
In the future, Kadiatu plans to open a water company and become a distributor of water by purchasing one brand new water machine for manufacture.
Kadiatu is a twin and her partner is a police officer. She thanks you for your support.
