This is 25-year-old Eric. He is single and has no children. In 2008, Eric established his drinks business. He began his business just to generate funds to further his education. His business is located at the city centre and his main customers are men and women. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le 250,000 every month from this business.

Eric would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. He requires a loan in order to buy soft drinks for Le 500,000, Star beer for Le 500,000 and stout for Le 500,000. He hopes that this loan will increase his stock level. In the future, Eric plans to further his education, and to travel abroad. He thanks you for your support.
