Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 41-year-old Alhassan from Moriba town Bo. He is married with four children between the ages of six and 18. His children are currently attending school. He was gardener and started this business from the money he earned through his vegetable garden.
Alhassan runs a used clothing business. He sells jeans, T–shirts and blouses. He has been running this business for 15 years. He works at the business eight hours per day and seven days per week. His business is his only source of income. At present he is facing a high cost of transportation and price inflation.
Alhassan has requested a loan in order to buy more clothes to sell. The extra income from this loan will allow him to pay his installment and take good care of his family. In the future, he plans to expand his business. He thanks you for your support!
