WPFL features Microenterprise Client Kadiatu Jalloh

Beginning November 10, Louisville Public Radio (89.3 WFPL) has been presenting a series of radio stories that honor and celebrate immigrant entrepreneurs in our community, and discuss the struggles, sacrifices and successes of their lives and businesses here in Louisville.

Among the five entrepreneurs highlighted in the series is JFCS microenterprise client Kadiatu Jalloh, originally from Sierra Leone, who owns and operates the Maa Sha Allah African Restaurant at 4113 Bardstown Road in Beuchel. Kadiatu survived civil war and years in a refugee camp before coming to the United States. After her arrival here, she started a delivery service selling home cooked West African food to recent immigrants, and saved enough to open her restaurant in 2009.

You can listen to Kadia’s interview over on the WFPL site. Take a moment and listen to this great story that JFCS is proud to be a part of!
