Unfortunately she was unable to obtain a good education, but she was determined to make herself useful. She started as a peddler in the villages and traded from one village to another. She succeeded over the years until she was married and relocated to the main district town. Working 7 days a week and 13 hours a day, she earns about 1,505,000 SLL every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL. Isata N. requires a loan in order to purchase different types of electronics items. In the future, Isata N. plans to expand her business and the loan will help her buy more stock. Competition is her major challenge. She is very hardworking and thanks ARD for giving her the opportunity to acquire a loan that will greatly help her business. She thanks you for your support.
