Sallu's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more clothing such as shirts, jeans, blouses, bags and shoes.
Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 40-year-old Sallu from Kulanda town, in Bo, a southern area of Sierra Leone. He is married with 4 children between the ages of 2 years and 18 years. His children attend school. He is seeking this loan because he wants to develop himself and his family. Sallu runs a clothing business. He sells shirts, jeans, blouses, bags, and shoes. He has been running this business for 10 years. He works at the business 8 hours a day and 6 days per week, and has two relatives that working for him. He also has a bike that he uses for transportation and to bring another income into the home. Sallu says that the major problems for his business are the high cost of transportation and, sometimes, low purchasing power of customers. Sallu has requested a loan to purchase more clothing such as shirts, jeans, blouses, bags and shoes. The extra income from this loan will allow him to educate his children and increase his business. In the future, he hopes to open a clothing factory. He thanks you for your support!
