This is 54-year-old Alusine. He is married and has three children ages 4, 9 and 15. He has two additional dependents who live with him to help, his wife's younger brother and sister. In 2004, Alusine established his building materials and scrap metals business. The business started to be self-reliant after spending most of his time at the mines. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Alusine has already received and successfully repaid two loans, and he now requires a new loan in order to buy an additional window frame and cement. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 291,720. In the future, Alusine plans to move from his tight shop to a spacious shop. He thanks you for your support.
