Thomas's story

This is 31-year-old Thomas from Jui, eastern area in Freetown. He is married with one child, 11 years of age. He began this business because he wanted to create a permanent source of income to take care of his family.

Thomas runs a general stock business; he sells drinks, cigarettes, biscuits and soaps. He has been running this business since after the rebel war. He works at the business every day, 12 hours per day. He says that the main challenge to his business is the slow purchasing power of customers.

The extra income from this loan will allow him to pay his child school fees and buy a plot of land. In the future, He plans to become an agent of provision and cigarette seller.
