This is 44-year-old Gibrilla. He is married, and has two children, ages 15 and 7.
In 2002, Gibrilla established his stationery business; he began his business because of low income. His business is located in the outskirts of the city, and his main customers are school-going children, men and women. Working seven days a week and eight hours a day, he earns about Le1,000,000 every month from this business.
He would like a loan of Le 5,000,000. Gibrilla requires a loan to buy more stationery to sell.
In the future, Gibrilla plans to increase his stock prior to school starting by buying different kinds of stationeries. He thanks you for your support.
