Meet 35-year-old Sorie from OI C Ropolo, Makeni Northern area in Sierra Leone. He is married with three children. For the past 20 years, Sorie has established a shoe business. He began his business because he considered it the best option to provide better living conditions. He works at the business ten hours per day and seven days per week. He says that the main challenges are storage facilities and high competition in the market.
Sorie requires a loan in order to buy slippers, shoes, and crape to expand his business. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to increase business and become successful. In the future, Sorie plans to expand his business more than ever. He thanks you for your support.
