Mohamed is 49 years old and is married with 4 children aged 16, 14, 8 and 5. He has 2 additional dependents living with him. They are his wife's relatives.
In 2004, Mohamed established his plumbing fittings business. He began his business by repairing fittings whilst he was an apprentice at SALWACO. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,300,000 every month from his business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Mohamed has already received and successfully repaid 3 loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy plumbing material for his shop. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 350,000.
In the future, Mohamed plans to do contract for major companies in order to cater to his children's schooling and medication. He thanks you for your support.
