Souleman is a 35-year-old man, married, and the father of four children. He runs a shop in his locality and he has been selling spices and various other goods for the past fifteen years.

Thanks to his enthusiasm and his good experience in this field, he has managed to attract an increasing number of customers. However, he is currently having a hard time meeting all of his customers' needs, because his capital is very small.

The profits from this loan will be reinvested, in part, into expanding his business, while the rest will be used to meet the needs of his family.
