A loan helped to invest in a machinery for sugar bag packing.

Gentian's story

Gentian is 38 years old and a married father of an 11-year-old daughter. They live in a little apartment building. Gentian is being photographed in a furniture shop owned by his father-in-law and where he has been working for all these past 18 years. He even met his wife there, who is the daughter of the owner and who is doing the fabric stitching for the furniture, such as couches, sofas etc. Gentian's pay is $325/month, while his wife's is $162/month. Gentian now wants to invest with one of his best friends in a machine for sugar bag packing that costs about $4,870 in total, a cost that they will share it equally; thus, the amount of money for Gentian to invest in it is $2,435, and this is what the loan will go toward, should you decide to lend to him. "This kind of activity will be good, because I can continue working in my current profession as a furniture maker and also make some more money through the sugar bags packing," said Gentian to the branch assistant.
