This is 41 year-old Yusifu, a married father of two children aged 3 and 15 years. In 1989, Yusifu established his ready-made items business as a means of generating income to support his family. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le 950,000 every month.
Having already received and repaid one loan, Yusifu is requesting a new one in the amount of Le 4,000,000 to buy more ready-made clothing. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 300,000. In the future, Yusifu plans to open a shop for his wife, buy a car for commercial use, and educate his children to college level. He thanks you for your support.
