This is 28 year-old Foday. He is single, and has no children. In 2001, in the outskirts of Freetown city, he established his slippers business because he realized his need to be independent and self-employed. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day he earns about SLL 800,000 per month.

Foday needs a loan of SLL 5,000,000 in order to buy more bags of different kinds of plastic slippers for his business. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 200,000. He thanks you for your support.
