This is 51-year-old Kabba. He is married and has four children, aged 22, 19, 16 and 13. He has one additional dependent, who lives with him because she happens to be his wife.
In 1997, Kabba established his Muslim caps and beads business. He began his business just to equip him to adequately care for his family. His business is located at the city center, and his main customers are both men and women. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about 300,000 SLL (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL.
Kabba has already received and successfully repaid two loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy Muslim caps and beads. He hopes that this loan will help increase his stock level. In the future, Kabba plans to complete the construction of his house and to rent a shop. He thanks you for your support.
