Archiboy's story

Archiboy is 33 years old and lives in the Kakata area; he unmarried with an eight-year-old child who lives at home and attends school.

For the past four years, he has been involved with the sale of alcoholic drinks like beer, stout, local gin, God-father-dry-gin, etc. He has requested this loan to purchase more alcoholic drinks for resale in order to expand his business. One challenge he faces is with changing Liberian dollars to U.S. dollars since he has to buy his goods in U.S. dollars. He started this business by selling around in the various communities for his father and learned the ways of selling from his friends. What he likes about this business is that he makes new friends every day, and it makes him proud of selling. In the future, he wants to open another shop near the present shop.
