Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 60 year old Adikalie from Tengbehtown in the western area of Freetown. He is married with five children between the ages of 10 years and 25 years. Two of his children attend school.
Adikalie runs a provision shop at his store; he sells items such as milk, baked beans, sugar, sardines, and bread. He has been running this business for five years. He works at the business for 12 hours a day and seven days a week. His other source of income comes from renting out a house. Adikalie says that his business is going well.
Adikalie has requested a loan in order to buy provisions such as milk, sugar, and sardines. The extra income from this loan will allow him to improve his standard of living and educate his children. In the future, he plans to develop his business more. He thanks you for your support!
