Meet 40-year-old Abdul from OIC Ropolo, Northern area in Sierra Leone. He is married with three children. Two of his children are currently attending school. In 1993, Abdul established his clothing business. He was in masonry; he started his clothing business to take care of his family welfare and improve his status of living. He works at the business from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 a.m., six days per week. He says that the main challenge to his business is the high cost of transportation.
Abdul requires a loan in order to buy more shirts, jeans, and other items for resale. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to increase his business and repay his loan. In the future, Abdul plans to expand his business more than ever. He thanks you for your support.
