Taban is a 39-year-old businessman who lives in Yei. He is married with five children between the ages of 3 and 16. All of them go to school.
Taban runs a general store and has been in business for six years. He has no employees. He heard about Finance Sudan through promotions by the loan officers. He is taking a loan of 4,000 SSP to purchase more juice, soda, Omo (a brand of detergent) and many other items. In addition to this business, he has no other source of income. His major challenges include high market prices and high transportation cost.
In five years, Taban would like to expand his business and open a depot.
Taban says he is happy for the loans given by Finance Sudan through the help of Kiva.
