This is 42-year-old Mamadu. He is married and has one child aged ten. In 2009, Mamadu established his provision (milk, sugar, eggs and drinks, etc.) business. He began his business because he wants to be independent. His business is located in the outskirts of the city and his main customers are all ages. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about SLL 2,000,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Mamadu requires a new loan in order to buy additional milk, sugar, eggs and drinks for his business. He hopes that this loan will add to his stock and he will make more profit. In the future, Mamadu plans to use the proceeds of his loan to educate his child. He thanks you for your support.
