Isatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 43-year-old Isatu from Waterloo eastern area in Freetown. She is married with 5 children between the ages of 9 years and 26 years. Three of her children attend school. She started her business for the daily survival of her family. Isatu runs a food stand business, selling cooking seasonings, oil and rice. She has been running this business since 1988. She works at the business 9 hours per day and 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is the problem of price control in the market.

She has requested a loan in order to buy food commodities like cooking seasonings, oil and rice. The extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children. In the future, she plans to have a permanent business location. She thanks you for your support!
