Joseph's story

This is 28-year-old Joseph. He is married and has no children. In 2009, Joseph established his provisions (Ovaltine, toothpaste, soap, cigarettes, soft drinks, etc.) business. He began his business because he attended school up to senior secondary level, but he has no sponsorship to further to tertiary level.

He joined what we called the Osusu Scheme and when he received his own share, he bought a motorbike which he used as public transport. The income he generated was used to establish his provisions shop. Working 7 days a week and 15 hours a day, he earns about 2,760,000 SLL every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL. Joseph has already received and successfully repaid 1 loan and now requires a new loan in order to buy hard drinks, soft drinks and pure water. In the future, Joseph plans to open another outlet, build a house and become an international business man. This loan will help to maximize his profit. He is a hardworking business man. He thanks you for your support.
