He started this business for himself because, at that time, he had 4 children to provide for. Today they all work independently, but he was of great help to them as he provided all the things they needed. He is requesting this current loan for business capital that will be used to buy raw materials for his workshop. His wish is to continue improving his home, which is also his work place.
