This is 24-year-old Sulaiman. He is single and has no children. He has one dependent, his mother.

In 2006, Suliaman established his electronic appliances business. He began his business because of the admiration he has for his father, who is a very successful businessman in the community. "I learnt business from my father," said Sulaiman.

Working 7 days a week and 13 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,000,000 every month from this business. He needs a loan of Le 4,000,000.

Sulaiman requires a loan in order to purchase laptop DVD players, DVD players, DVDs, and televisions for his business. In the future, Sulaiman plans to develop it further so that he can become more successful and popular than his father, build a house, get married and have children. He thanks you for your support.
