This is 35-year-old Hassan. He is married and has one child, age five. He has one additional dependent, living with him as a sales assistant.
In 2002, Hassan established his building materials business. He began the business because he wanted to take care of his family. Hassan's business is located on the outskirts of town and his main customers are men. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, he earns about Le 800,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000.
Hassan requires a loan in order to increase his available stock. He hopes that this loan will help him by increasing his stock and earning him more profits. In the future, Hassan plans to build a house. He thanks you for your support.
