Meet 32-year-old Moses from the eastern area of Waterloo in Sierra Leone. He is widower with three children between the ages of 7 and 12. His children are currently attending school.
In 2005, Moses established his clothing business. He began his business because he wanted to create a permanent source of income to support his family; he was a farmer, but since he could not find a suitable site, he decided to go into business. He works at the business from 8:00 am until 7:00 pm, 7 days per week. He says that the main challenge to his business is the high cost of the local tax.
Moses requires a loan to purchase more clothing for both men and women. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to become more successful, and to pay his children's school fees.
In the future, Moses plans to expand his enterprise to wholesale. He thanks you for your support.
