This is 27 year-old James. He is married, and has 2 children ages 7 and 3 years. In 2006, James established his used clothes business. He began his business when he found out that the used clothing business is profitable. Working 6 days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about Le 850,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. James requires a loan in order to buy additional used clothing. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 170,000. In the future, James plans to build a house and educate his children to university level. He thanks you for your support.
