This is 45-year-old Ambrose. He is married and has one child, age 8. In 2003, Ambrose established his business selling provisions, drinks, toiletries, water, and recharge cards. He started the business to be self-reliant after dropping out of school.
His business is located in the outskirts and his main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about 600,500 SLL every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL. Ambrose requires a loan in order to buy provisions and drinks for his business.
He hopes that this loan can increase his inventory and expand the business. In the future, Ambrose plans to improve the business and expand the recharge cards trade. He thanks you for your support.
