Boyd's story

Boyd is a 29-year-old emerging entrepreneur. He is based in Chibombo district in the Central Province of Zambia, where he lives with his wife and child.

Boyd has been running a grocery store for over five years. He stocks a variety of day-to-day consumer items including toilet paper, tea bags, coffee, powdered milk, salt, eggs and sugar.

Boyd is asking for a loan in order to obtain an additional upright double door display fridge for his store. The additional fridge in Boyd's store will allow him to expand his business by stocking more cold storage items, such as cold beverages, fresh milk, yogurt, fish and fresh meat products that are in high demand in the area, but not widely available.

The introduction of these cold storage items will attract more customers to Boyd’s store. This will in turn bring in more revenue for him.

Rent-To-Own will deliver the fridge to Boyd’s store, and will ensure that he is trained on how to use and maintain the fridge properly so that it may continue to work for his store over the long term.
