Babaseyid S. is a young man of 55. Little by little, he reaches his goals through perseverance and dedication. Thanks to his personal strength and desire to provide a better future for his family, he has progressed from being a salesman to being his own boss. Approximately 15 years ago, Babaseyid rented a place which had deteriorated badly, with terrible conditions, and it was there he started his business. Since then, he has expanded his grocery and now it is one of the best known groceries in his community.
Babaseyid is now requesting a loan of $2,000 USD to increase the stock of foodstuffs in his store. Babaseyid is ready to work even harder, make sacrifices, and push to achieve his goal of becoming a successful entrepreneur. We believe his perseverance and clear vision will be key success factors in his small business.
