Meet 33-year-old Isatu from the Jui eastern area in Freetown. She is married with two children, aged 6 and 18 years old.

In 2010, Isatu established her cookery business. She began her business because she wants to create income to educate her children since she did not go to school. She works at the business from 8:00am until 7:00pm, seven days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is a lack of enough capital to operate her business.

Isatu requires a loan in order to purchase rice, cooking seasonings and palm oil to expand her cookery business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her status of living and increase her business. In the future, Isatu plans to open a restaurant. She thanks you for your support.
