Abu Bakarr Sidikie
This is thirty- three year-old Abu Bakarr. He is married and has one child, aged four. In 2010, Abu Bakarr established his DVD, VCD, and recharging cards business. He began his business after dropping out of school to be self reliant. His business is located in the city center and his main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 14 hours a day, he earns about 1,100,000 SLL every month from this business. He would like a loan of 3.000,000 SLL. Abu Bakarr requires a loan in order to pay for additional DVDs and recharge vouchers. He hopes that this loan can increase his stock and raise his profits.
