This is 48-year-old Sinneh. He is married and has one child, age 13. He has one additional dependent, who lives with him because he adopted her.

In 1990, Sinneh established his used clothing business. He began his business because he believed it would make him become self reliant. Working seven days a week and twelve hours a day, he earns about $338 every month from this business.

He needs a loan of 4,000,000 SLL to buy additional bales of used clothing. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately $68.

In the future, Sinneh plans to build a house and educate his child and his adopted child to the university level. He thanks you for your support.
