This is 30-year-old Brima. He is married, and has one child aged six. He has nine additional dependents. In the year 2000, Brima established his Provisions business selling milk, sugar, butter, tea, sardines, etc. He began his business because he wanted to improve the standard of living of himself and his family.
Working 6 days a week and 8 hours a day, he earns about 1,300,000SLL every month from this business. He needs a loan of 4,000,000SLL. Brima requires a loan to be able to buy his goods in bulk so that his can make more profit. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 300,000SSL.
In the future, Brima plans to educate his child to university level and buy a piece of land, rent a shop, hire a salesperson, and sell his goods wholesale. He thanks you for your support.
