This is 24 year-old Soriba. He is single and has no children. In 2007, Soriba established his textiles business. He began his business just after he completed high school. As he did not have the opportunity to pursue his education, he thus went into business. Working six days a week and ten hours a day, he earns about 1,000,000 SLL every month from this business.

Soriba would like a loan in the amount of 4,500,000 SLL. He has already received and successfully repaid his first loan and now requires a new loan in order to buy one bail of jeans and to use the remaining amount to pay for transport. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 900,000 SLL.

In the future, Soriba plans to rent a shop. He thanks you for your support.
