Abdul is 35 years old and married with two children, ages 6 and 10 years old. He runs a clothing store in the Waterloo eastern area, Freetown, Sierra Leone. His children are attending school. He began this business as he did not go through with formal education. He's been in his business for eight years and sells men's wear and women's wear, jeans, shirts and slippers. His business is the only source of income he has. At present, he is faced with insufficient capital to invest in the business.
Abdul requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more clothes such as men's wear and women's wear, jeans, shirts and slippers. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him increase his business and pay his installments. In the future, he would like to build his own structure. He is grateful for your support.
