This is Salieu. He is 45 years old, married and has two children who are 16 and 12 years of age.
In 2004, Salieu established his business, which focuses on selling stationary, clocks, flowers and other items. He began this business because, after completing his high school education, there were no jobs available for him. He works seven days a week, 10 hours a day and he earns about 1,200,000 SLL every month. He would like a loan in the amount of 4,500,000 SLL. Salieu requires a loan in order to travel to buy more stationary and clocks in large quantity for his business.
In the future, Salieu plans to expand his business in other locations. He thanks you for your support.
