This is 30-year-old Alpha. He is married and has one child aged 4 years. He has no additional dependents. In 2004, Alpha established his pharmacy business. He began his business just after he completed his high school education and could not study further due to his parents' lack of means to sponsor him. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,500,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000.
Alpha has already received and successfully repaid one loan and now requires a new loan in order to buy pharmaceutical drugs. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 906,640. In the future, Alpha plans to start selling wholesale. He thanks you for your support.
