Ibrahim is 44 years old. He is married and has four children, aged 8, 12, 16, and 18. Three of his children attend school.
In 1998, Ibrahim established his used clothing (house dressings) business. He began his business because he was in school when his father died. As a result, he went to live with his older sister and joined his brother-in-law's business. Ibrahim stayed with them for several years before he set up his own business.
Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, Ibrahim earns about SLL 775,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000 to purchase five bales of house dressings. In the future, Ibrahim plans to improve his business and educate his school-going children. He wants to acquire more loans in order to purchase large amounts of stock.
He thanks you for your support.
