Isatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 41-year-old Isatu from the eastern area of Waterloo, in Freetown. She is married with five children between the ages of 8 and 19; her children are attending school. She began her business after vocational training school.

Isatu runs a beauty salon within a busy market area; she sells hair, shampoo, conditioner, and hair cream. She has been running this business since 2006. She works at the business six days per week, ten hours a day. Isatu says that the major problem to her salon is insufficient capital to buy equipment for the shop.

Isatu has requested a loan in order to purchase salon equipment such as a dryer, a curling pin, and a fan. The extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her status and educate her children up to the university level.

In the future, she plans to open one of the biggest beauty salons in the community. She thanks you for your support!
