A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase additional cows to sell and to expand into sheep rearing.


Alieu's story

Alieu is 57 years old and married with 14 children. He has been running his cow trading business for 30 years but it was interrupted by the civil war. He restarted the business after the war but at a very small scale. He buys and sells cows in Freetown and other towns of Sierra Leone while engaged also in subsistence farming. His previous loans enabled him to expand his business from purchasing and selling 2 cows a month to 4 cows. He would like to expand his business and involve his wife in rearing sheep. He is therefore requesting a $1200 loan.
