Asad A. is 68 years old, and a very hard working, enthusiastic man who is married and wishes to give the best support to his 3 sons. Because the small pension he received was not sufficient to cover the family's basic expenses, he decided to start his own business selling office supplies, beverages, snacks and candies. He made a wise decision when he rented a place near one of the local schools and now the majority of his clients are school children, teachers and sometimes parents.
Asad tries to give his family as much money as possible in order to cover the expenses of schooling his grandchildren. His sons are married but it is still very hard to cover family needs and Asad`s business is an additional source of income.
Today Asad wants to expand his business and to increase his working capital in order to purchase new goods to sell. With this purpose in mind, he is requesting a loan of US$1200. He hopes you will choose to play an important role in his business' growth and in the life of his family, and he thanks you for your support.
