This is 44-year-old Reginald. He is married and has no children. He has one additional dependent who lives with him to help a sister with her child's education.
In 2008, Reginald established his food and drinks business. He began his business because he wanted to be self-reliant after graduating from college. His business is located in the city center and his main customers are all ages and sexes.
Working 6 days a week and 14 hours a day, he earns about Le 2,332,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan of Le 5,000,000. Reginald has already received and successfully repaid four loans and now requires a new loan to buy soft drinks, rice and oil. He hopes that this loan will increase his stock and maximize his profit.
In the future, Reginald plans to expand his business to the outskirts of town. He thanks you for your support.
