This is 40-year old Momoh from Krootown in the central area of Freetown, Sierra Leone. He is married and has one child who is seven years old. In addition, he has two relatives that live with him at home.
Momoh runs a clothing store business, selling jeans, slippers, polo shirts, ladies body suits, capes and bags. His store is located within a busy market. For the past seven years he has been running this business. He works at his business six days per week, eight hours a day. He also works as a fisherman to increase his income and meet his family’s needs. He says that the main challenge to his business is insufficient capital to invest in the business.
Momoh will use the loan of 6,000,000 SLL to buy clothes including jeans, slippers, polo shirts, ladies body suits, capes and bags. The extra income from this loan will allow him to pay for his son’s schooling. In the future, he plans to operate an international business.
He appreciates your support.
