This is 30 year-old Samuel. He is single and has two children aged 6 and 4 years. In 2008, Samuel established his Boutique business. He began his business just to be self reliant. His business is located at the center of the city and his main customers are visitors to the market. Working 6 days a week and 9 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,500,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Samuel requires a loan in order to buy textiles. In the future, Samuel plans to open another outlet so that he can deploy one of his cousins. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profit by approximately Le 1,000,000. He thanks you for your support.
