George runs a small-scale agricultural business and owns an apple garden. He sells his harvest seasonally. The only monthly income for the family is a small refugee assistance from the local government, which is hardly enough to cover feeding costs for the family of nine.
In order to generate income, George plans to start a trading business with fruits and vegetables. With the loan amount, he will purchase fresh products in bulk and sell them in his district with a price mark-up. George owns a mini-bus and will use it in making deliveries. George hopes his initiative will be lucrative and be able to increase family funds.
George and his family members are awaiting your generosity.
