This is thirty-one-year-old Mustapha. He is married and has one child, aged two.
In 2008, Mustapha established his barbering business. He began his business because he wanted to be self reliant. His business is located in the city center and his main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 13 hours a day, he earns about 995,250 SLL every month from this business.
He would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL. Mustapha requires a loan in order to pay for an additional barbering comb, generator and fan. He hopes that this loan can improve on the shop and increase his customers. In the future, Mustapha plans to change the small wooden kiosk to a metal kiosk, and also plans to expand and open outlets with the town. He thanks you for your support.
