Junisa's story

Meet 30 year old Junisa from Lumley western area in Freetown, Sierra Leone. He is married with three children between the ages of 2 years and 8 years old. Two of his children are currently attending school. In 2002, Junisa established his general merchandise business. He began his business because he needed a permanent source of income to support his family. He also earns another source of income from a commercial bike. He works on the business 7 days per week. He says that the main challenge to his business is lack of sufficient capital to invest in the business.

Junisa requires a loan in order to buy more milk, egg, butter, cheese, mayonnaise, sugar and perfume. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to improve his level of income and the standard of living of his family. In the future, Junisa plans to open an outlet and employ staff. He thanks you for your support.
