This is 27-year-old Alex. He is married, and has two children aged one and three years old. In 2004, Alex established his business selling mobile phones, DVD Laptops and accessories. He began his business when he dropped out of school. He has been successful in business. Working six days a week and nine hours a day, he earns about 2,640,000SLL every month from this business. He needs a loan of 3,000,000SLL. Alex requires a loan in order to buy more electrical goods. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profit by approximately 528,000SLL. In the future, Alex plans to open an electronics shop and send his first child to a private school. He thanks you for your support.
