Alex K. is 42 years old, and is married with 3 children. He started his business selling essential medicines 5 years ago on a very small scale by hawking from house to house, and also visiting his customers. With the loans, Alex opened a pharmacy in Makeni Town in Sierra Leone.

Although Alex's business is growing, he lacks the capital to purchase a variety of medicine. So he is requesting a loan of $700 to purchase more medications.
