Alpha Bakarr's story

This is 38-year-old Alpha Bakarr. He is married and has three children aged five, ten and fifteen. In 2009, Alpha Bakarr established his flowers, picture frames, window linings, mats, clocks, Christmas trees, and house decorations business.

He began his business in order to be self reliant after coming from the village. His business is located in the city center and his main customers are adults. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,141,000 every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Alpha Bakarr has already received and successfully repaid two loans and now requires a new loan in order to pay for additional Christmas decorations. He hopes that this loan can increase the stock and expand the business.

In the future, Alpha Bakarr plans to improve the business and expand to a shop. He started the business selling for his brother, and he now owns his own. He thanks you for your support.
