Sheriff is 40 years old and married with 1 child, age 10 years. He runs a general merchandise store in Lumley in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
He's been in this business for 10 years and sells bottled water, sugar, milk, stout, toilet rolls, Heineken and soft drinks at his store. He began this business because he needed to have a permanent source of income. He says that the main challenge to his business is price fluctuation.
Sheriff requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to buy more provisions and assorted drinks. He says that the extra income from this loan will help him educate his child. In the future, Sheriff would like to import goods from overseas. He is grateful for your support.
