This is 24-year-old Sulaiman. He is single and has one child, age 3 years.

In 2007, Sulaiman established his DVD, VCD and television business. He began his business because he wants to enhance his independence and that is the sole source of livelihood.

Working seven days a week and 13 hours a day, he earns about SLL 1,000,000 every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,000,000. Sulaiman has already received and successfully repaid a loan and now requires a new loan in order to buy DVDs, a 14-inch television and memory sticks. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 250,000.

In the future, Sulaiman plans to establish a modern electronics shop and to establish another branch. He thanks you for your support.
