In 2002, Ibrahim established his palm oil, pepper, potatoes, etc. business. He began his business because he wants to take care of his family. His business is located on the outskirts of town and his main customers are women. Working seven days a week and ten hours a day, he earns about Le 800,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000.

Ibrahim now requires a loan in order to purchase sacks of cassava, potatoes, palm oil, etc. for resale. He hopes that this loan will help him to earn more profits. In the future, Ibrahim plans to finish his house and sublet it to earn more money. He thanks you for your support.
