This is 25-year-old Ahmed. He is single and has no children.
In 2006, Ahmed established his men's wear business. He began his business because he wants to be self-reliant after dropping out of school. His business is located in the city center and his main customers are males. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,300,000 every month from this business.
Ahmed would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,000,000. He has already received and successfully repaid three loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional jeans, shirts, T-shirts and shorts. He hopes that this loan can increase his business and increase the profit.
In the future, Ahmed plans to move to a concrete shop, whilst trying to acquire a certificate in welding. He thanks you for your support.
