This is 48 year-old Abu-Bakarr. He is married and has four children ages 16, 14, 12 and 10 years old. In 2010, Abu-Bakarr established his Pure Water Company business. He began his business because he wanted to improve his livelihood and be self-reliant. His business is located on the outskirts of town and his main customers are the general community. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,000,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan of Le 5,000,000. Abu-Bakarr requires a loan to buy more water plastic, water tanks and other materials for resale. In the future, Abu-Bakarr plans to become an international businessman and build a factory to help others. He thanks you for your support.
