This is 51 year-old Sampha. He is single and has two children age 25 and 11.

In 1983, Sampha established his Africana dress business. He began his business because he wanted to earn his living. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about SLL 1,500,000 every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Sampha has already received and successfully repaid his first loan, and now he requires a new loan in order to buy 30 sets of Africana dress @ SLL 150,000, with the balance to be used for transport. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 906,640.

In the future, Sampha plans to expand his business and deploy one of his relatives. He thanks you for your support.
