Alpha's story

This is 58 year old Alpha. He is married, and has 5 children aged 30, 28, 25, 17 and 15. In 1982, Alpha established his cassava, potato and Chinese yam business, which he began because he wants to assist himself and family. His business is located in the outskirts of town and his main customers are women. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about SLL 500,000 every month. Alpha now requires a new loan of SLL 3,000,000 in order to purchase sacks of cassava, potatoes, etc., for resale. He hopes that this loan will help him to realize more profits. In the future, he plans to finish his three-story building and put it up for rent. He thanks you for your support.
