Musa's story

This is 34-year-old Musa. He is married and has 2 children, ages 10 and 8, both of whom are in school.

In 1992, Musa established his second-hand clothing business. He began his business because he did not have the opportunity to go to school. Since his parents are traders, when was he was much older he decided to join them in business. He helped his parents for years, until he decided to set up his own business. Working seven days a week and 11 hours a day, he earns about Le 521,000 every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of Le 4,000,000. Musa wants to purchase sport shorts for men - 2 bales @ Le1,350,000 and T-shirts for men - 11/2 bales @ Le1,300,000.

Since Musa was not fortunate enough to be educated, his future plans include the hope to support his children through school to whatever level they choose. He hopes to expand his business, though competition is his main challenge.

The loan will help him achieve his dream by requiring subsequent loans. He will be able to buy more stock in order to be competitive. He is a hardworking-business man. He thanks you for your support.
