Sillah is 31 years old, married, and has three children aged 4, 5 and 10. He has two additional dependents who live with him. In 2001, he opened a spare-parts (auto and motor) business after losing a brother who was supporting the home. Sillah has already received and successfully repaid two loans, and is now requesting a new loan for Le 4,000,000 to buy engine oil. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 575,200. In the future, Sillah plans to move to a bigger shop and expand. He thanks you for your support.
