John's story

John is a 57-year-old emerging small-scale entrepreneur. He is based in the Lundazi District in the Eastern Province of Zambia where he lives with his wife and children and runs a grocery store.

John is asking for a loan in order to obtain a Multimode Deep Freezer to be used in his store. He has been running his grocery store for the last eight months and stocks a variety of day-to-day consumer goods including milk, cooking oil, bread, sugar, eggs, salt, and biscuits. Currently, John’s stock is limited to non-perishable and dry foods. Having a Multimode Deep Freezer will allow John to expand his stock range to include cold storage items such as fish, fresh meat, fresh vegetables, and fruits. Being able to stock these items will attract more customers to John’s store and hence increase his earnings.

Rent-to-Own will deliver the deep freezer directly to John’s shop and will also ensure that John is trained on how to properly use and maintain the deep freezer so that it may continue to work for his business long term.
