This is 35-year-old Abdul, a married father of three children aged 4, 2 and 18 months, the oldest a school-going child. In 2008, Abdul established his used clothing business, a livelihood taught to him by the uncle who raised him. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about Le 850,000 every month from this business. Competition is very high.
Abdul is requesting a loan for Le 3,000,000 to buy bales of used clothing. Committed to his business, he hopes to expand in the future, and accessing loans in ARD will be a great help. As well, he plans to educate his children and develop his family. Abdul thanks you for your support.
