This is 43-year-old Sallieu. He is married and has 3 children, aged 5, 8 and 15. He has 2 additional dependents who live with him to help in his business.
In 1997, Sallieu established his used clothing business. He started this business to be self-reliant after spending so much time in the mines. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000.
Sallieu has already received and successfully repaid 3 previous loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional ladies used clothing. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 431,100. In the future, Sallieu plans to expand the business to the outskirts of town and to market day’s locations. He thanks you for your support.
