Abu Bakarr's story

Abu Bakarr is 48 years old and is married with three children, ages 7, 10, and 19. He has one additional dependent, who lives with him because he is in school and needs assistance. Abu Bakarr established a cosmetic and artificial hair business in 1996. He began his business to avoid being idle and it is his only source of income. Abu Bakarr works seven days a week and nine hours a day to earn about 950,000 SLL every month.

Abu Bakarr is requesting a 3,000,000 SLL loan to buy hair extensions and artificial hair products such as Darling and Rihenna. He hopes that his loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 250,000 SLL. In the future, Abu Bakarr plans to own a house in Freetown, educate his children, and buy a car. He thanks you for your support.
