This is 29-year-old Abdul K.. He is a widower and has one child, aged 9 years.
In the year 2009, Abdul established his used-clothing business. He began this business because he believed he ccould get enough income to support his family. Working seven days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about SLL 400,000 every month.
He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Abdul requires this loan in order to buy bails of used clothing. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 200,000.
In the future, Abdul plans to buy a larger quantity of clothes to supply to other traders, to hire sales persons, and to open another stall. He thanks you for your support.
