This is 32-year-old Tommy. He is married and has 2 children, ages 11 and 2 years old. He has one additional dependent who lives with him because he is his nephew.
In 2000, Tommy established his drinks business. He began his business because he wanted to have more income to provide livelihood for his family. Working 7 days a week and 15 hours a day, he earns about 800,000 SLL every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL. Tommy requires a loan in order to buy additional drinks for his business. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 200,000 SLL.
In the future, Tommy plans to get a house, educate his children and extend his business. He thanks you for your support.
