This is 42-year-old Kadiatu. She is married and has two children aged twenty-three and fourteen. In 2008, Kadiatu established her business selling foil wrappers, serving plates, foil bowls, ketch-up, mayonnaise and other provisions. She began her business because she believes that business is the only way out for her to progress in life. Her business is located in the city center and her main customers are adults.

Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, she earns about Le 1,800,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Kadiatu requires a loan in order to pay for more provisions, paper plates, and foil bowls. She hopes that this loan will help improve her business status and also her living standard. In the future, Kadiatu plans to meet her daughter’s educational needs at the university. She thanks you for your support.
