Thomas's story

Meet 40-year-old Thomas from Waterloo eastern area in Freetown, Sierra Leone. He is married and has four children between the ages of 6 years and 20 years. They are currently attending school.

In 1995, Thomas established his general store. He began his business because he dropped out of secondary school level, and his uncle taught him business.

He works at the business every day, 13 hours per day. He says that the main challenges to his business are price inflation and the cost of transportation.

Thomas requires a loan in order to buy more soft drinks, pure water, candles and cigarettes. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to educate his children and change his level of living. In the future, Thomas plans to build a house. He thanks you for your support.
