Joseph is a young 38-year old Cameroonian. He is married and father of five children, of which the youngest is 4-years old and the oldest is 16-years old. Four attend school. In order to take care of his family's needs, Joseph has been making cooking pots that he sells in a neighborhood of the city for almost 16 years. Very experienced in this domain, Joseph has an ever-growing and demanding clientele. Without enough raw materials to make large quantities of pots, Joseph would like to use the loan to buy a large quantity of aluminum in order to make enough pots to satisfy his customers. The profits from this increase will be reinvested in his business and will allow Joseph to ensure a good education for his children.
