This is 33-year-old Mayah. He is married and has 3 children, ages 12, 8, and 6.

In 2006, Mayah established his beverage business. He began his business because he wants to generate funds to further his education and that is his only source of income. Working 7 days a week and 20 hours a day, he earns about 1,200,000 SLL every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL in order to buy soft drinks, stout, Maltina and parrot brand drinks. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 200,000 SLL.

In the future, Mayah plans to further his education, take good care of his parent and to give his children a quality education. The persistent increase in the general price level is his major business challenge. He thanks you for your support.
