In 2002, Thaimu established his used clothing business in order to be self-reliant. His enterprise is located in a busy market area, and his main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,596,000 every month.
Having already received and repaid three loans, Thaimu is requesting a new one for Le 5,000,000 to increase his stock of used vests, blouses, T-shirts and jeans in order to increase his profits. In the future, he plans to open outlets on the outskirts of town. He thanks you for your support.
