This is 45-year-old Mohamed. He is married, with three children, ages 22, 19 and 15 years, all in school.
In 1998, Mohamed established his pharmacy business. He began his business for self employment, and it is his only source of survival. Working 7 days a week and 13 hours a day, he earns about Le 720,000 every month from this business.
He would like a loan of Le 5,000,000. Mohamed has already received and successfully repaid two loans. He now requires a new loan in order to buy more medicines to stock. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 340,000.
In the future, Mohamed still musters the plan of building a back house, modernizing his drug store, and educating his children. He thanks you for your support.
