This is 46-year-old John. He is married and has two children, ages 15 and 16. In 2005, John established a pharmacy. He began his business because he was trained as a pharmacist. John's business is located in the outskirts of the city and his main customers are all classes of people. He works seven days a week, 12 hours a day and earns about 500,000 SLL each month.
John is requesting a 5,000,000 SLL loan to purchase more drugs to sell. In the future, he plans to construct a clinic and to educate his children. John thanks you for your support.
