This is 42-year-old Foday. He is married, and has two children aged seven and four years old. One is a school going child. In 2012, Foday established his building material business. He began his business because he was trained in business and that is why he decided to set up his own to provide a livelihood and develop his family. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about SLL 8,000,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Foday requires a loan in order to buy more building materials (cement, paints, and floor mats). In the future, Foday plans to improve his business and educate his children to university level. He thanks you for your support
