This is 34-year-old Mayah. He is married and has three children, ages 13, 9 and 7.

In 2006, Mayah established his soft drinks business. Working seven days a week and 20 hours a day, he earns about SLL 270,000 every month from this business.

Mayah requests a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Mayah has already received and successfully repaid one loan and now requires a new loan in order to buy soft drinks. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 180,000.

In the future, Mayah plans to further his education, own a house and rehabilitate his late father’s house. He thanks you for your support.
