Meet 36 year-old Joshua from Kulanda Town, Bo, located in the southern part of Sierra Leone. He is married with two children, ages 3 and 7. Joshua's wife is a teacher who also contributes to support the family.
Joshua runs a local convenience store where he sells assorted items. When he started his business, he only sold shoes but has now expanded to include many other items. Joshua also owns a moto-taxi to generate more income.
Joshua is requesting a loan to purchase more goods and inventory for his store. He hopes that his loan will generate more income to take care of his family. Your support is greatly appreciated!
