This is 34-year-old Idriss. He is married and has 2 children aged 2 and 1. He has one additional dependent who lives with him because she is his stepdaughter.
In 1995, Idriss established his school uniform and tailoring materials business. He began his business because he gained the experience of material sales through his elder brother and because uniform sales gives more profit. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about 1,100,000 SLL every month from this business.
He would like a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 SLL. Idriss has already received and successfully repaid 2 loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional schooling materials. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 250,000 SLL. In the future, Idriss plans to get a dwelling house and educate his children. He thanks you for your support.
