Isata's story

This is 41-year-old Isata B. She is married and has four children who are 18, 16, 12 and 8 years old. In 2005, Isata B. established her school bags, traveling bags and ladies bags business. She began her business because she inherited it from her mother and since she was not fortunate enough to go to school, she decided to use the business as her own career.

Working six days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about 1,800,000 Le (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 6,000,000. Isata requires a loan in order to buy more bags. She was able to secure another sales outlet out of the profit she made from the previous loan, which is run by her cousin. Her plan of becoming an agent has not materialized, but she is still on it. As much was realized from her previous loan, she was able to make prompt payment of school fees for her children. Her monthly profit greatly increased and she was able to open a savings account with a commercial bank. She is still determined to become an agent for one importer in town.

She thanks you for your support.
