Siaka Deen
This is 52 year-old Siaka. He is married and has 6 children aged 26, 23, 20,17,15, and 12. In 2011, Siaka established his beverage business. He began his business to continue his economic activities after work. His business is located on the outskirts of town and his main customers are both men and women. Working 7 days a week and 14 hours a day, he earns about SLL 1,000,000 every month from this business.

Siaka would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000 in order to buy crates of Star beer, crates of stout, and crates of soft drinks. He hopes that this loan will increase his stock level and hence his profit. In the future, Siaka plans to expand the bar, to build another house, and to educate his children. He thanks you for your support.
