Greetings from Sierra Leone! Thank you for supporting Alhaji with his boutique, where he sells clothing, shoes and shirts.
He used the loan to buy clothing, shoes, shirts, men's polo shirts, ladies' bags, etc., for resale. The entire loan was used to buy all his items that are in demand.
Alhaji says his business improved with the loan. He noted that weather condition affected his business during the loan cycle. Alhaji's goals and dreams are to become an International businessman. He wishes to tell Kiva lenders thanks.
