Morlain is 47 years old and is married with 7 children. His business is the main source of income for his family. With his previous loan, he increased his stock by 40 gallons of palm oil and earned more income. He is now requesting another loan for Le.1,000,000 ($350 USD) to purchase 75 gallons of palm oil. This will increase his stock and income.
