Alifa's story

Alifa is a 41-year-old man living in a common-law marriage who is the father of two children, both minors. He opened a sewing workshop in a local neighborhood, where he has been selling fabrics and clothing for five years. Thanks to this business, he's able to meet family needs.

He has won over a customer base, which is growing and growing, and has earned its loyalty. But due to the little capital he has, he is not able to satisfy the demand totally.

He is requesting this loan to add to his inventory of fabrics in order to satisfy his customers more. The profits generated will be reinvested not only to expand his business but also to take better and better care of his family.
