Mark's story

This is 43-year-old Mark. He is married, and has four children aged two, five, eight, and twelve. He has two additional dependents, who live with him to help one of his brothers send his children to school. In 1996, Mark established his used clothing business. He began his business by helping his late brother and now owns his own business. Mark sells different types of men’s trousers and shirts. Working seven days a week and eight hours a day, he earns about SLL 1,200,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan of SLL 4,500,000. Mark has already received and successfully repaid two loans and now needs a new loan to buy bales of used trousers for SLL 1,600,000, used shirts for SLL 1,100,000, and coats for SLL 1,500,000. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 300,000. In the future, Mark plans to open another used clothing stall that his brother, who has come from the village, will operate, and to make sure his children are well cared for. He thanks you for your support.
