Ishmael's story

This is thirty-four-year-old Ishmael. He is married, and has two children aged four and seven. In 2001, Ishmael established his used clothing business. He started his business with an uncle after dropping out of school and with the aim of being self-reliant. His business is located in the city center and his main customers are ladies and gents. Working 7 days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about SLL 1,975,000 every month from this business.

He would like a loan of an amount of SLL 3,000,000. Ishmael has already received and successfully repaid four loans, and now requires a new loan in order to buy additional ladies t-shirts and original shorts. He hopes that this loan will help the business by improving on the stock.

In the future, Ishmael plans to improve and expand the business. The loan can help to increase the stock and maximize the profit. He thanks you for your support.
