Asking for increase in salary

Dear Mr. Jason,

I have been with our company for three years now working as a Sales Assistant. My salary has been stagnant for USD3000 per month for two years. These days, the salary is barely enough to make ends meet, and with the cost of living spiralling upwards every day, soon it will not be sufficient.

So may I request for an increase in salary of USD200 per month? This increase will ease things a bit for the immediate future at least. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
