Ishmail's story

This is 41-year-old Ishmail. He is married and has two children, a school-going ten-year-old child and a five-month-old baby. He has three additional dependents, one who is a school-going child he is helping and two who help with domestic work.

In 2005, Ishmail established his clothing business. After attaining his Ordinary Level education certificate he joined his elder brother in this business. He had wanted to go to college but was not able to for lack of financial support. He and his brother worked in the trade together for years, until Ishmail set up his own business.

Working seven days a week and eleven hours a day, he earns about SLL 1,100,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 4,000,000. Ishmail requires a loan in order to purchase jeans, shoes, t-shirts, sneakers, Lacoste shirts, and football jerseys.

In the future, Ishmail plans to expand his business, set up a cosmetics store and educate his children. He is a hardworking and competitive businessman. He thanks you for your support.
