Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 36-year-old Alfred from Kulanda town in the southern district of Bo. He is married with 3 children between the ages of 10 years and 18 years. His children are attending school.
Alfred runs a cinema center where he shows movies and football games, and he also sells generators. He has been running this business for 7 years. He works 14 hours every day and has 1 employee. The business is his only source of income. He says that the main challenge to his business is an insufficient power supply to run his cinema center.
Alfred has requested a loan in order to buy a projector and more generators. The extra income from this loan will allow him to pay his installments quickly and improve his family's welfare. In the future, he plans to open an electronics factory. He thanks you for your support!
