Abdul's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase beans, gari, and bags of ground nuts to sell.

Abdul's story

Meet Abdul. He is in his late 40s and is from Waterloo, eastern area in Freetown. Abdul is married with two children ages eight and 13. For the past ten years, he has run a local food business. Abdul began his business because his parents did not send him to school and so he learned business. He works seven days a week from eight in the morning through seven at night. Abdul's main business challenges are storage facilities and the high cost of transportation. Abdul is requesting a loan to purchase more beans, gari (cassava flour) and bags of ground nuts to sell. He hopes that the extra income from his loan will allow him to empower himself and increase his business. In the future, Abdul plans to build a big house. He thanks you for your support.
