This is 36-year-old Hamza. He is married and has 4 children, aged 13, 10, 6 and 5 months. In 2006, Hamza established his mobile phones and accessories business. He began his business because he wants to be self empowered and he learned it through an apprenticeship.
Now, working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about Le 520,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,500,000. Hamza has already received and successfully repaid 2 loans and now requires a new loan in order to buy mobile phones and accessories. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately Le 250,000.
In the future, Hamza plans to complete the construction of his house, to improve on his stock level as he has rented the shop he intended to rent. He thanks you for your support.
