Kadiatu's story

Meet Kadiatu, she is 36 years old from Lunsar, Northern area in Sierra Leone. She is married with 5 children. In 2005, Kadiatu established her retail business. She began her business because she wanted to improve her standard of living. She works at the business 11 hours per day, 6 days per week. She says that her major problem to her business is the high cost of transportation.

Kadiatu requires a loan in order to purchase more rice, soap, Vaseline and toothpaste for resale. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to take care of her family's welfare and increase her business. Seemingly distinct businesses are often mixed in Sierra Leone, the idea being that a customer will come to purchase one thing but will leave having purchased another. In the future, Kadiatu plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
