Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 52-year-old Kadiatu from Waterloo Eastern area in Freetown. She is married with five children between the ages of 7 years and 13 years. Two of her children are attending school. She started business because she needs to create a permanent source of income to support the home.

Kadiatu runs a retail business; she sells floor mats, sets of pans, and plates. She has been running this business since 2002. She works at the business seven to twelve hours per day. Kadiatu says that the main challenge to her business is that transporting her goods from the city to her business place is very difficult.

Kadiatu has requested a loan in order to purchase items including floor mats, sets of pans and plates for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow her to buy a plot of land and renovate her house. In the future, she plans to build a permanent business location. She thanks you for your support!
