Meet 29-year-old Sheriff from Waterloo, Western rural area in Freetown. He is married with two children who are 1 and 4. In 2009, Sheriff established his clothing business. He began his business because he wanted to create his own permanent source of income. Before then, Sheriff was a shopkeeper. He works seven days a week from eight in the morning through seven at night. Sheriff's main business challenge is the lack of enough capital.
Sheriff is requesting a loan to buy male and female jeans, shirts, and blouses to resell. He hopes that the extra income from his loan will allow him to increase his business and renovate his house. In the future, Sheriff plans to import goods from a neighboring country. He thanks you for your support.
