This is 63-year-old Kafo. He is married and has 6 children ages 37, 30, 24, 21, and 21. He has 2 additional dependents who live with him as his sales assistants.
In 1970, Kafo established his commercial business. He began his business just for self-empowerment. His business is located at the city centre and his main customers are men and women. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about Le 400,000 every month from this business.
He would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Kafo has already received and successfully repaid one loan, and now requires a new loan in order to buy used clothes and items such as a bedspread (Le 3,000,000). He hopes that this loan will increase his stock level, and thus his income.
In the future, Kafo plans to complete the construction of his house and educate his children. He thanks you for your support.
