This is 33-year-oldld Abdul. He is married and has 2 children, aged 8 and 6 years. He has 2 additional dependents who live with him for schooling.
In 2006, Abdul established his business selling Top-Ups (cell phone service reloads) and all kinds of mobile phone accessories, as well as movies, etc. He began his business because he was earning a very low salary and needed an extra source of income to support his family. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le 900,000 from this business.
Abdul would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000 to buy different brands of mobile phones and their accessories. In the future, Abdul plans to open other centers that will be managed by his wife. He thanks you for your support
