This is 35 year-old Idrissa. He is married and has 4 children aged 14, 11, 8, and 6 years. He has 2 additional dependents, who live with him for schooling.

In 2000, Idrissa established his jewelry business. He began his business just to engage himself in an economy activity. His business is located at the city center, and his main customers are all classes of businesspeople. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about SLL 1,500,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,000,000 in order to buy necklaces (500,000), bracelets (450,000), and earrings (500,000). He hopes that this loan will increase his stock levels and hence his profits.

In the future, Idrissa plans to build a house and to establish a branch shop. He thanks you for your support.
