This is 36-year-old Julius. He is married and has three children ages 5, 3, and 1 month. In 2011, Julius established his bar and restaurant business. He began his business because he wants to provide a livelihood for his family. Working 7 days a week, 14 hours a day, he earns about SLL 800,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Julius requires a loan in order to buy more drinks and food for his restaurant for resale. In the future, Julius plans to become an international businessman, educate his children to university level, and build his own house. He thanks you for your support.
