A loan of $1,050 helped to pay for cooking utensils and rubber bowls.


Umaru's story

This is thirty-three-year-old Umaru. He is married, and has three children aged two, seven and ten.

In 2000, Umaru established his cooking utensil and rubber bowls business. He began his business because he wants to be self-reliant and to look after his children. Working seven days a week and twelve 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. Umaru has already received and successfully repaid two loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy more stock. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 300,000. In the future, Umaru plans to move from a stall to a shop, to open another outlet shop for his wife and take care for his children’s needs. He thanks you for your support.
