Meet 31-year-old Alimamy from Waterloo, western rural area in Freetown. He is married and has one child, aged two years. In 2008, Alimamy established his clothing business. He began his business because, after he completed his sixth form, his family could not afford to pay his collage fees. So he raised money to start up his business. Before that, he was an office messenger. He works at the business ten hours per day and seven days per week. He says that the main challenge to his business is lack of enough capital to run the business.
Alimamy requires a loan in order to buy men's shirts, shoes, jeans and ladies 'jeans to expand his business. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to increase his business and repay his loan. In the future; Alimamy plans to build his own business structure and open another outlet. He thanks you for your support.
