This is 34-year-old Mohamed. He is married, and has three children aged 7, 10, and 13. In 1989, Mohamed established his used clothing business. He began this business because he gained the experience of selling used clothing from his late father. Used clothes are easy to sell. Working seven days-a- week, and ten hours a day, he earns about Le 1,200,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Mohamed has already received, and successfully repaid three loans. He now requires a new loan in order to buy additional mini dresses, tan tops, and cotton shirts. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 300,000. In the future, Mohamed plans to educate his children, and finish his building. He thanks you for your support.
