Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 48-year-old Raymond from Kandeh town. He is married and has three children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old. His children are currently attending school.
Raymond runs a bar and restaurant at his house. He sells assorted drinks, pure water, roasted meat, and snack foods. He has been running this business for 20 years. He works at the business from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm, 7 days a week, and has one relative that assists him in running the business. His business provides the only income he has. His business is doing well, and more customers are coming to have fun.
Raymond has requested a loan in order to buy a fan, a generator, and assorted soft drinks. The extra income from this loan will allow him to expand his business and educate his children. In the future, he plans to have a big business structure on his own. He thanks you for your support!
