This is 40-year-old Mohamed. He is married and has 4 children, ages 16, 13, 10 and 7.
In 1999, Mohamed established his textile business. He began his business just to enable him to adequately take care of his family and it is the only source of livelihood. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about 650,000 SLL every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL. Mohamed requires a loan in order to buy jeans, trousers and shirts. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 330,000 SLL.
In the future, Mohamed plans to complete the construction of his house and to educate his children. He thanks you for your support.
