This is 35-year-old Osman. He is married and has two children, ages 6 and 2. He has two additional dependents living with him. In 2007, Osman established his mobile phone credit card business. He began his business because he wants to assist his family. Working 7 days a week and 13 hours a day, he earns about 800,000 SLL every month from this business. Osman now requires a new loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL in order to increase his inventory of credit cards and to buy one new Tiger generator for charging phone batteries. In the future, Osman plans to become an international business man and supply to other business men and women. He thanks you for your support.
