Alpha   Umaru
Meet 27-year-old Alpha from Calabatown, a single man who takes care of one relative at home. In 2003, Alpha established his pharmacy as a permanent source of income. He says that his main business challenge is ever-rising transportation costs.

Alpha is now requesting a loan to buy more medicines such as blood syrups, cough syrups, and malarial drugs. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to improve his standard of living, and plans to expand his business in the future. Alpha thanks you for your support.
