This is 32-year-old Gibrilla. He is married, but has no child.
In 2005, Gibrilla established his business making chairs, beds, cupboards, dividers, dressing mirrors, speaker boxes, and tables. He began his business because he stopped at Form (4) and went further to the technical institute. After graduation, he joined his father's carpentry workshop, and later he established his own workshop.
Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about SSL 2,517,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan of SSL 3,000,000. Gibrilla requires a loan in order to buy timber (12 pieces @ SSL 25,000), 2" sponges (5 pieces @ SSL 180,000), 4" sponges (5 pieces @ SSL 300,000), and velvet cloth (30 yards @ SSL 10,000).
In the future, Gibrilla plans to build a house; buy a carpentry machines, and acquire a bigger workshop. This loan will help to improve the workshop.
