This is 30-year-old Mohamed. He is married, and has two children, aged six and one. He has three additional dependents, who live with him to assist in the shop. In 1997, Mohamed established his building materials business. He began his business to earn income for the family. Working seven days a week and nine hours a day, he earns about Le 1,300,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan of Le 5,000,000.
Mohamed has already received and successfully repaid two loans, and now requires a new loan in order to increase his supply of building materials. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 350,000. In the future, Mohamed plans to be a supplier to industries and contractors. He thanks you for your support.
