This is 40-year-old Joseph. He is married and has two children, aged eight and three, who both attend school. In 2007, Joseph established his cinema business. The business was started to help a late brother after coming from the provinces. His business is located in the city center and his main customers are all ages and sexes.
Working 7 days a week and 14 hours a day, he earns about 1,126,000 SLL every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL. Joseph requires a loan in order to improve a side shop in the same building for the sale of drinks. He hopes that the loan can help to start the drinks sales business. In the future, Joseph plans to expand the business with the sale of drinks. He thanks you for your support.
