This is 35-year-old Sheku Omar. He is married, and has one child who is nine years old. In 2007, Sheku Omar established his plastic rubber bowls and set pan business. He began his business because he wants to be self sustainable so that he can address his problems and needs all by him self. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,000,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Sheku Omar requires this loan in order to buy rubber bowls,rubber buckets and set of pan. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 900,000. In the future, Sheku Omar plans to expand his shop and to become a supplier. He thanks you for your support.
