Meet 31-year-old Mustapha, from Moriba town Bo. He is married with two children, 3 years and 7 years old. One of his children is currently attending school.
In 2003, Mustapha established his provisions business. He began his business because he was a student, but he could not have money to further his education. Through his little savings from friends, he decided to start a business. He works at the business every day, from morning to night. He says that the main challenge to his business is the high cost of transportation.
Mustapha requires a loan in order to buy more cartons of mayonnaise, milk, sardines, and bag sugar. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to improve his living conditions and educate his children. In the future, Mustapha plans to open another shop. He thanks you for your support.
