This is 34-year-old Abdulai. He is married and has three children, aged 2, 5, and 10. He has one additional dependent who lives with him to help a younger brother with his education.

In 2001, Abdulai established his cow meat business. He began his business after coming from the village to stay with a brother and to be self-reliant. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le, 765,000 every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Abdulai has already received and successfully repaid two loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy more cow meat. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 221,200.

In the future, Abdulai plans to increase the number of beef stands. He thanks you for your support.
