Mama is a 31-year-old man. For the last 3 years, he has run a small shop where he sells cellular telephones. His business is successful thanks to its location and Mama's experience in this area of business, which have both allowed him to increase his customer base as time goes on.

Mama is requesting a loan to increase his stock of merchandise. This will allow him to avoid running completely out of stock - something he is often faced with due to his lack of capital which forces him to run through a substantial amount of his stock to have enough to be able to re-stock again. This will increase his sales and therefore his profits. Mama will reinvest a part of these profits into his business in order to expand it, and the rest will allow him to provide for the basic needs of his family.
