Santigie's story

Meet 30-year-old Santigie from Kulanda Town, in the southern area of Bo, in Sierra Leone. He is divorced with one child who is 13 years old. His child is currently attending school.

In 2005, Santigie established his building materials store. He began his business because he was out of a job and he wanted to raise money to take care of himself and his child. He works at the business seven days each week and 12 hours a day. He says that the main challenges to his business are price inflation and transportation costs from Freetown to Bo.

Santigie requires a loan in order to buy more items for his building supply store, like cement, paint, shovels and tile. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to educate his child and improve his family's standard of living. In the future, Santigie plans to open a cement factory. He thanks you for your support.
