This is 40-year-old Fayia. He is married with one child, who is 11 years old. In 2006, Fayia established a drink and grocery business. He began his business in order to take care of his family. His business is located in the outskirts of town and his main customers are the general community. Working 7 days a week and 17 hours a day, he earns about 700,000 SLL every month. He would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL. Fayia requires a loan in order to buy more drinks for resale. He hopes that, with proper usage, this loan will support him. In the future, Fayia plans to expand and to open more branches. He thanks you for your support.
