Henry's story

Henry is happily married and has been blessed with six beautiful children. He is in the taxi business and is requesting a loan that will enable him to buy spare parts to service his car so that he can quickly get back to supporting his family. Through his business he has interacted with a lot of his clients and has identified that which gives his service an edge over the rest is the condition of his car as customers look for comfort whenever they hire a taxi. Henry plans to pay for his loan using the profits he makes from his business. His dream is to expand his business and have more vehicles on the road and educate his children.
