This is 48-year-old Wilfred. He is married and has 4 children, ages 20, 15, 13 and 7 years. He has 3 additional dependents who live with him to assist in business.
In 2002, Wilfred established his charcoal and wood business. He began his business because in the environment there was no such business and there was a demand for it. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about 1,950,000 SLL every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL. Wilfred requires a loan in order to purchase more stock.
In the future, Wilfred plans to erect his own house. He thanks you for your support.
