This paper is devoted to the study of establishing sufficient conditions for existence and uniqueness of positive solution to a class of non-linear problems of fractional differential equations. The boundary conditions involved Riemann-Liouville fractional order derivative and integral. Further, the non-linear function $f$ contain fractional order derivative which produce extra complexity. Thank to classical fixed point theorems of nonlinear alternative of Leray-Schauder and Banach Contraction principle, sufficient conditions are developed under which the proposed problem has at least one solution. An example has been provided to illustrate the main results.
