This is 31 year-old Gibrilla. He is married and has two children, age 7 and 4.
In 2001, Gibrilla established his ladies and gents wearing and traveling box business. He began his business because he wanted to engage himself in an economic activity and that is his only source of survival. Working seven days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about SLL 500,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,500,000.
Gibrilla has already received and successfully repaid a loan, and now he requires a new loan in order to buy jeans trousers costing SLL 2,000,000, traveling boxes costing SLL 1,500,000 and polo costing SLL 1,000,000.
He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 300,000. In the future, Gibrilla plans to establish a boutique, to complete the construction of his house and to educate his children. He thanks you for your support.
