This is 28-year-old David L. He is single and has one child, age 1 year 4 months.
In 2005, David L. established his clothing business. He began his business because after he graduated from college, he was not fortunate to have a job and was advised by a friend who was a trader to join his business.
Instead of sitting idling at home, he started with a small amount from his savings. Working seven days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about SLL 506,000 every month from this business.
He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,000,000. David L. requires a loan in order to purchase men's sport shorts - 1 bale @ SLL 2,000,000; children's wear - 1 bale @ SLL 1,000,000, and men's shirts - 1 bale @ SLL 1,000,000.
Competition in his line of business is high and he requires enough capital to buy goods that are in great demand.
In the future, David L. plans to expand his business and open a store befitting his large stock. He is a hardworking business man. He thanks you for your support
