This is 28-year-old Ibrahim. He is married and has two children, aged 10 and 3 years. In 2003, Ibrahim established his pharmacy business. He began his business because he wanted to improve his life. His business is located in the outskirts, and his main customers are general community people.
Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about 600,000 SLL (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL. Ibrahim requires a loan in order to buy more medicines for resale. He hopes that this loan will support him through proper use. In the future, Ibrahim plans to expand by selling drugs on a wholesale basis and to educate his children up to university level. He thanks you for your support.
