Alpha   A
Meet 32 year old Alpha from Lumley in the western area in Freetown, Sierra Leone. He is married with two children between the ages of 2 years and 6 years old. One of his children is currently attending school. In 2002, Alpha established his pharmacy business. He began his business because he wanted to generate enough income to support his family. He works at the business 7 days per week. He says that the main challenge to his business is lack of enough capital.

Alpha requires a loan in order to buy more cosmetic and medical drugs. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to raise enough profit to train his children. In the future, Alpha plans to open up more branches and employ staff. He thanks you for your support.
