Sulaiman's story

The loan will be used to buy more plates, jugs, soap, sugar, fruits and cooking oil, and will help Sulaiman to generate greater profits and expand the business because he can now open up a supermarket. Sulaiman hopes that in the future he will be able to establish the supermarket in the area and expand his dairy farming.
