This is Joseph, who is 35 years old. He is married and has two children, aged 9 and 6 years.
In 2006, Joseph established a business photocopying, printing and laminating. His business is located in City Center, and his main customers are the general community. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about SLL 400,000 every month from this business.
He would like a loan of SLL 5,000,000 to increase his stock of stationery to meet the demand of the customers. He hopes that this loan will help his business grow. In the future, Joseph plans to continue his project. He thanks you for your support.
