This is 45 year-old Ibrahim. He is married and has five children who are 4, 7, 14, 17, 18 years old.
Ibrahim established his fish vending business many years ago, in order to generate income. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, he earns about Le 600,000 every month from this business. Ibrahim is very hard working and determined, and would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000 to buy fish in larger quantities. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 1,200,000.
In the future, Ibrahim plans to sell fish wholesale to his colleagues. With his increased profit, Ibrahim plans to construct a home for his family. He thanks you for your support.
