This is 44 year-old Hassan. He is married, and has 2 children aged 20 and 14. In 1992, Hassan established his men's wear business. He began his business because he wants to reach the peak of his family needs. Working 7 days a week and 9 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,350,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Hassan has already received and successfully repaid 2 loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional jeans shirts and polos. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 300,000. In the future, Hassan plans to complete his building project and to own a shop. He thanks you for your support.
