Joseph's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 39-year-old Joseph from Moriba Town, in the southern area of Bo. He is married with three children between the ages of 8 and 14 years old. His children attend school. Joseph left school at secondary level and started doing hard labor.

Joseph runs an electrical appliance store, where he sells extension cords, electrical cable, sockets, lamp holders and bulbs. He has been running this business for ten years. He works at the business 13 hours a day and seven days a week. His other source of income comes from his wife who is a business woman. Joseph says that the main challenge to his business is insufficient capital to expand his business.

Joseph has requested a loan in order to buy more extension cords, electrical cable, sockets, lamp holders and bulbs. The extra income from this loan will allow him to educate his children and improve his family's welfare. In the future, he plans to open a bigger store. He thanks you for your support!
