James's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase cement, zinc, nails, door locks, etc.
Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 50-year-old James from Masuba, Makeni northern area in Sierra Leone. He was a contractor but it is very difficult to earn a contract. James runs a building material store within a busy market area. He sells cement, zinc, nails, door locks, etc. He has been running this business for 15 years. He works at the business from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., six days per week. James says that the main challenges to his business are that transporting his goods is very difficult and there is high competition in the market. James has requested a loan in order to purchase cement, zinc, nails, door locks, etc. for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow him to open a savings account and take care of his family's welfare. In the future, he plans to become a wholesaler. He thanks you for your support!
