Isatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 55-year-old Isatu from Tombo in a western rural area. She is widowed with three children. She began this business to create a permanent source of income to support her needs. Isatu runs a food stand business; she sells pepper, Maggi, and cooking seasonings within her community. She began running this business immediately after her husband died. She works at the business ten hours per day and seven days per week. Isatu says that the main challenge to her business is insufficient capital to expand her business. Isatu has requested a loan in order to purchase more cooking ingredients, such as rice, oil and pepper, for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to provide for her daily meals and increase her business. In the future, she plans to renovate her house. She thanks you for your support.
