This is 42-year-old Daramy. He is married and has one child, aged 12 years old. He has one additional dependent living with him.

In 2007, Daramy established his tailoring business. He began his business because he wanted to improve himself and his family. Working six days a week and ten hours a day, he earns about Le 1,000,000 every month from this business.

He would like a loan of Le 5,000,000. Daramy requires this loan for him to buy an industrial tailoring machine, which produces different tailoring designs. This will increase his number of customers, which will eventually increase his profit.

In the future, Daramy plans to establish a tailoring school to train youths in tailoring. He thanks you for your support.
