Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 38-year-old Ibrahim from Kulanda Town Branch Southern Area Bo District. He is married and has three children between the ages of 2 years and 16 years. Two of his children attend school.

Ibrahim runs a shoe store where he sells ladies' sandal, shoes, children's slippers, etc. He has been running this business for five years. He works at the business from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m., seven days per week. His business is the only source of income he has. Ibrahim says that the main challenges to his business are price inflation and high rental fees.

Ibrahim has requested a loan in order to buy more ladies' sandals, shoes, slippers and crape for resale. The extra income from this loan will allow him to increase his business and educate his children. In the future, he plans to expand his business more. He thanks you for your support!
