Meet Moses, a 47-year-old widower who lives in Freetown, Sierra Leone. He has three children between the ages of 18 years and 25 years, two of whom are currently attending school, one at the university level.

Moses established his general merchandise business in 1998 after his position as a government worker was eliminated through privatization. He works very hard at his store 12 hours a day, 6 days per week in order to support his family. His main business challenges are insufficient capital and price inflation.

Moses requires a loan of le 6000000 to buy a stock of items to sell in his store, and believes that the extra resulting income will allow him to pay his monthly installment and increase his savings. In the future, Moses plans to expand his business into a wholesale operation. He thanks you for your support.
