This is 33-year-old Philemon. He is married and has no children. In 2010, Philemon established his pharmacy business. He began his business because he wanted to empower his wife to be self-employed. His business is located in the market center of town and his main customers are children, and men and women, young and old. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le 600,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Philemon requires a new loan in order to buy more drugs to meet the needs of the people in the market area. He hopes that this loan will help his business to achieve his goal and objective through proper utilization. In the future, Philemon plans to establish a first-class pharmacy in the eastern part of Freetown. He thanks you for your support.
