A loan of $700 helped to pay for five bales of men's used shoes.


Abu Bakarr's story

This is 53-year-old Abu Bakarr. He is married and has five children aged 4, 6, 8, 12 and 17. He has three additional dependents, who live with him because he is helping his nephews with their education.

In 2001, Abu Bakarr established his used shoes business. He began his business as an expansion of his wife's business. His business is located in the city center, and his main customers are adults. Working seven days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about 1,063,800 SLL (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL. Abu Bakarr has already received and successfully repaid three loans, and now requires a new loan in order to pay for an additional five bales of men's shoes. He hopes that this loan can increase the stock and raise the profit. In the future, Abu Bakarr hopes to grow the business and to be able to make enough so that could take care of the children's education. He thanks you for your support.
