This is 44 year-old Mohamed. He is married, and has 5 children, aged 3, 6, 12, 16 and 21. In 1998, Mohamed established his used shoes business. The business started to be self-reliant and enabled him to take care of his family. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Mohamed has already received and successfully repaid 2 loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy three bales of used school shoes. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 382,800. In the future, Mohamed plans to improve the kiosk and to expand. He thanks you for your support.
