This is 43 year-old Subba. He is married and has 3 children, aged 3, 5 and 9. He has 1 additional dependent who lives with him to help with the house chores. In 1994, Subba established his used bags business. The business started after coming from the provinces to be self reliant. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Subba has already received and successfully repaid 3 loans, and now requires a new loan in order to add on the school bags. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 316,710. In the future, Subba plans to improve on the sale of bags and move to a shop. He thanks you for your support.
