Miniru's story

This is 28-year-old Muniru. He is married, and he has two children, ages four and six. He has one additional dependant, who lives with him to help with a younger brother's schooling.

In 2007, Muniru established his business selling provisions, drinks, toiletries and gari. He started the business to be self-reliant after dropping out of school. His business is located in the outskirt town, and his main customers are adults. Working 7 days a week and 14 hours a day, he earns about SLL 2,531,000 every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Muniru has already received and successfully repaid five loans, and he now requires a new loan in order to buy more provisions. He hopes that these loans will help him to increase his stock and expand the business.

In the future, Muniru hopes to improve the business and expand to a shop within the lorry park. He started the business hawking gari around the lorry park area, and now he has a shop. He thanks you for your support.
