This is thirty-three-year-old Mohamed. He is married, and has two children aged two and six.
In 2003, Mohamed established his used clothing business. He began his business to be self-reliant after coming from the village. His business is located in the city center, and his main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,532,800 every month from this business.
He would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Mohamed has already received and successfully repaid one loan, and now requires a new loan in order to pay for additional used clothes. He hopes that this loan can increase the stock and expand the business.
In the future, Mohamed plans to improve the business and expand to a shop. He thanks you for your support.
