Telebeh is 30 years old and single with no children for now. He runs a food stuff business in Tengbeh town western area in Freetown, Sierra Leone. He is very hard-working. He works in the business 7 days per week, 11 hours a day.
He's been in this business for 10 years and sells onions and garlic. He also earns income from small-scale farming in the village. He says that the main challenge to his business is the high price of transportation costs.
He requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more bags of onions and garlic onions. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him change his standard of living. In the future, he would like to expand his business and open more stores. He is grateful for your support.
