This is 33-year-old Mohamed M. He is married and has 3 children aged 4, 3 and 1; one is in school. He has 3 additional dependents, who live with him to be foster and help in business.
In 2001, Mohamed M. established his nails, hammers, levels, spanners, lamp holders, bulbs, painting brush, extensions etc. business. He began his business because he stopped in Form 4 for lack of support for his education. He used to assist his mother in business and when he dropped out of school his mother gave him some amount of money to start a building materials business. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about 1,875,000 Leones (SLL) every month from this business.
He would like a loan in the amount of 4,000,000 SLL. Mohamed M. requires a loan in order to buy nails, extension cables, solvents, lamp holders, electric bulb and hammers. In the future, Mohamed M. plans to educate his children and younger ones, build a house and open a shop. This loan will help to improve the business and generate more income. Inadequate capital is his major challenge. He is a hardworking and trustworthy business man. He thanks you for your support.
