In 2003, Nabieu established his plastic items business because he wanted to support his family. Working six days a week and eight hours a day, he earns about Le 300,000 every month. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,500,000. Nabieu has already received and successfully repaid one loan, and now requires a new loan in order to buy more stock for his shop. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 350,000.
