Juldeh is 40 years old and married with 5 children between the ages of 2 and 20. He runs a general merchandise business in Kulanda, Bo, in the Southern Province of Sierra Leone. Four of his children are currently attending school.
He's been in this business for 25 years and sells cigarettes, sardines, toothpaste and bread within his neighborhood. He also earns income from renting out a house. He says that the main challenge to his business is that his purchasing power is very low.
Juldeh requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy stocks of soft drinks, pure water and bags of milk. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him educate his children and improve his family's level of living. In the future, he would like to expand his business more. He is grateful for your support.
