Gibril A's story

Gibril is 40 years old, married, and has one child. He is from OIC, Ropolo in the northern area of Sierra Leone. He was trained in business, so he considered it as the best choice for him. Gibril runs a general merchandise business, which he has been doing for 13 years. He sells soft drinks, toothpaste, and cigarettes. He works 12 hours a day, six days a week. The main challenges are the high cost of rent for his shop and insufficient capital to expand his business. Gibril is requesting a loan, which he will use to buy more soft drinks, toothpaste, and cigarettes to sell. The extra income from this loan will allow him to become a successful businessman and improve his family's standard of living. In the future, Gibril plans to expand his business.
