Jacob is a 42-year-old business man, who lives in Juba. He is married and has 6 children between the ages of 28 and 6. All of them go to school.
Jacob runs a food store business, and he has been in this business for 3 years. He has 1 employee. Jacob heard about Finance Sudan from outreach and promotion done in the market by the loan officer. He is taking a loan of 2000 SDG to purchase more items like soda, milk, drinking water, and many others. In addition to this business, Jacob has no other source of income.
In 5 years time, Jacob would like to build a house and increase the number of goods if not open another shop. His major challenges include the low income rate and high standard of living in Juba. Jacob says that he appreciates finance Sudan for considering men too for the loans because some of the MFIs consider women only.
