Paul B
This is 35-year-old Paul who is married and has three children, ages 17,14, and 4. In 2011, Paul established his Internet café business. He began his business because his wife saw the need for such a service in their area. Also, she is computer literate. Working six days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about SLL 600,000 every month from this business. He would like a loan in the amount of SLL 5,000,000. Paul requires a loan to buy a photocopier for his café. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profit margin. In the future, Paul plans to improve his business and his family status. Presently, he lacks equipment like a photocopier and generator to run the business. He thanks you in advance for your generosity.
