Because of his experience and seniority, he has a large customer base which consists of his neighbors and friends. When he first started he had some financial problems to create and establish his store. He decided on starting his business because he knows how to approach people. He is special in his work because he can deliver the orders at home; his clients call him, and then he goes and delivers at their place. For the future, he hopes to keep on improving his work and start selling toys.
Today, Afif is requesting a loan to purchase merchandise for his store. This is the first time that he has requested a loan.
