Ishmeal's story

Meet 45-year-old Ishmeal from Waterloo eastern area in Freetown. He is a married man blessed with 4 children between the ages of 3 and 16 years. Two of his children are currently attending school. In 1993, Ishmeal established his general merchandise business. He began his business because he needed to get a permanent source of income to support his family. He works at the business throughout the week from 8:00am to 7:00pm. His main hardship is insufficient capital to operate his business. Ishmeal requires a loan in order to buy more inventory for resale, like plastic, rubber, food containers and rice. He hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to expand his business by purchasing additional general stock for resale. In the future, Ishmeal plans to own a permanent business location. He thanks you for your support.
