A loan helped to purchase cement, zinc, nails and door locks.
Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 48-year-old Abdul from Masuba, Makeni northern area in Sierra Leone. He began his business because he wants to generate a permanent source of income to support his family. He is hardworking and desires to educate his children. Abdul runs a building materials business within a busy market area; he sells cement, zinc, nails and door locks. He has been running this business since 1999. He works at the business from 7:00am until 6:00pm, 6 days per week. Abdul says that the main challenge to his business is that transporting his goods is very difficult and there is high competition in the market. Abdul has requested a loan in order to purchase cement, zinc, nails and door locks. The extra income from this loan will allow him to increase his business and take care of his family's welfare. In the future, he plans to develop his business. He thanks you for your support!
