John's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to help add stock of electronics to boost his business.

John's story

John is happily married and is blessed with three children. He runs an electronics shop to help him bring up his family. John is committed to his business, and his commitment has been shown through the testament of his customers who are loyal to his business.

The major challenge he faces is lack of enough capital to boost his business. The loan that he is seeking will enable him to boost his business with more electronics that will boost his sales and enable him to pay back his loan with the help of his profits. John's dream is to grow his electronics shop and be a successful businessman in the future.
