This is 27 year-old Mohamed. He is married and has two children, ages 4 and 7 years old. In 2003, Mohamed established his coffee/tea drink business. He began his business because he needed a source of income to support family. Working six days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le 800,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,000,000. Mohamed requires a loan in order to buy coffee/tea items by cartons. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 250,000. In the future, Mohamed plans to open a restaurant, hire workers (trained staff) and promote his children to higher institution. He thanks you for your support.
