Unisa's story

This is 37 year-old Unisa. He is married and has 2 children ages 12 and 3 years. He has 2 additional dependents who live with him and assist him in the shop. In 1997, Unisa established his provisions, soap, and cigarette business. He began his business to enable him to abandon a shepherd job. This business is the only source of livelihood for his family. Working 7 days a week and 16 hours a day, he earns about 1,500,000 Sierra Leone leones (SLL) every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL. Unisa has already received and successfully repaid a loan and now requires a new loan in order to buy cigarettes, mayonnaise, sardines, milk, and soap. Unisa hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 400,000 SLL. In the future, Unisa plans to own a house, to establish a larger business, and to travel to the holy land of Mecca. He thanks you for your support.
