Kadiatu's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 28-year-old Kadiatu from Tombo Western rural area in Freetown. She is married with 2 children. She started this business because she needed to create a permanent source of income to support the home.

Kadiatu runs a food stand business: she sells flour, cooking oil, palm oil, and cooking seasoning. She has been running this business since 2001. She works at the business seven days per week and twelve hours per day. Kadiatu says that the main challenges to her business are insufficient finances to expand her business and price inflation.

Kadiatu has requested a loan in order to purchase food items like drinks, flour, cooking oil, palm oil, and cooking seasoning 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!
