This is 43-year-old Sulaiman. He is married and has two children, aged 9 and 13.

In 2007, Sulaiman established his provisions, bread, milk, and sugar business. He began his business because he wants to be self-reliant after coming from the village. His business is located on the outskirts, and his main customers are all ages and sexes. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le 1,117,500 every month from this business.

Sulaiman would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. He requires a loan in order to buy additional sugar, milk, laundry soap, and bathing soap. He hopes that this loan can increase the stock.

In the future, Sulaiman plans to make more profit and improve on the education of the children. He thanks you for your support.
