This is 41-year-old Mohamed. He is married and has five children aged 15, 10, 8, 5, and 3 years old. In 1997, Mohamed established his local foodstuff business. He began his business just to earn income. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,500,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000 in order to buy local rice. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 1,000,000. In the future, Mohamed plans to become a leading supplier of local foods. He thanks you for your support.
