This is 44-year-old Mark. He is married, and has 4 children aged 3, 6, 8 and 13. He has 2 additional dependents, who live with him so he can assist a brother with his children's education. In 1997, Mark established his used clothing business. The business started to be able to cater to the needs of the family. Working 6 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le 2,535,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,500,000. Mark has already received and successfully repaid 3 loans, and now requires a new loan in order to increase his stock of used trousers. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 557,700. He thanks you for your support.
