James has been running his own business for several years where he sells construction material using the small amount of savings that he has. He sells building blocks.

With this business, James has been able to overcome financial difficulties in his household, as he is the head of the household where he lives with his wife and five children. Through his business, James has had to put in a lot of effort but it has grown little by little in response to those efforts that he makes and this has progressively enabled him to improve sales and as a result, the income. However, due to the low level of available capital, it has caused him to miss out on large sales and that is why James is seeking a loan to buy more blocks for sale.

His dream is to improve his household's income so that his family can have a better quality of life and a better school education for his children.
