This is 38-year-old Farrah. In 1988, Farrah established his carpentry items business, making and selling chairs, beds, and cupboards. He began his business because he wanted to generate income and establish a savings account for retirement. Working seven days a week and eleven hours a day, he earns about $150 every month from his business.

He would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL in order to buy more lumber. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately $300. In the future, Farrah plans to produce more quality products as the demand for his products is very high. He also hopes to buy more working tools, as he wants to train some younger workers. He is serious and determined and thanks you for your support.
