Idriss's story

Idriss is married with three children, two of whom are school-going. He has a shop in the city center where he sells tailoring materials. He is assisted by his wife at the shop when he is out of town. Idriss would like a loan of 4,000,000 SLL in order to increase his tailoring material stock. His materials are in very high demand and he would very much like to satisfy his customers. Idriss plans to use the proceeds from this loan to complete the payment for a piece of land on which he has already made a part payment. He also hopes this loan will enable him to grow his business so that he can support his family. He thanks you for your support.
