This is 39-year-old Chernor. He is married, and has three children aged 14, 9, and 6. In 2007, Chernor established his provisions and confectioneries business. He began his business just to enable him to adequately take care of his family. His business is located on the outskirts of town and his main customers are all classes of people. Working seven days a week and 14 hours a day, he earns about Le 750,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. Chernor has already received and successfully repaid two loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy: dozens of sardines-1,000,000, carton of batteries-1,000,000, carton of Peak milk-500,000. He hopes that this loan will increase his additional income, which he can use to solve his domestic problems. In the future, Chernor plans to build a house, to rent a shop in the city center and to educate his children. He thanks you for your support.
