Ishmael's story

This is thirty-three-year-old Ishmael. He is married, and has two children aged three and seven. In 2001, Ishmael established his used clothing business. He began his business to be able to meet his family’s needs. Working seven days a week and twelve hours a day, he earns about SLL 1,600,000 every month from this business.

He would like a loan of SLL 5,000,000. Ishmael has already received and successfully repaid two loans, and now requires a new loan in order to increase his stock. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately SLL 400,000.

In the future, Ishmael plans to expand to another market in the town, to increase his profits and have enough funds to take care of his family. He thanks you for your support.
