Miniru's story

This is twenty-eight-year-old Miniru. He is married, and has two children aged three and six. He has one additional dependent who lives with him to help his brother with his education.

In 2007, Miniru established his provisions, drinks, toiletries, and recharge card business. He began his business because he wanted to be self reliant after dropping out of school. His business is located in the outskirts and his main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 14 hours a day, he earns about SLL 2,300,200 every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Miniru has already received and successfully repaid five loans, and now requires a new loan in order to pay for additional soft drinks, cigarettes and mayonnaise. He hopes that this loan can improve the stock and raise the profit. In the future, Miniru plans to open an outlet in the center of town. With the loan the goods would increase, he hopes to be able to continue with his education and improve the business. He started as a gari vendor, and now with the loans he has received from ARD, he now has a provision shop. He thanks you for your support.
