This is 33-year-old Amara. He is married with two children aged five and three. In 2003, Amara established his electronics business. He began his business because he came from a very poor home and had no one to pay his school fees. Working seven days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le700,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le4,500,000 to purchase more electronics to sell. In the future, Amara plans to build his own shop, travel to Dubai, and educate his children in the university. He thanks you for your support.
