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

A loan helped to buy more timber to make furniture.

David's story

David is happily married and is blessed with two children.

To support his family, he runs a timber yard to make a living for them. Beside operating a timber yard he also makes exquisite furniture for his customers. David enjoys the business because of its profits and he is very motivated to keep on growing it. The major challenge he faces is capital to buy more timber for his business since the demand is very high.

David is humbly requesting for a loan that will enable him to buy more timber and has promised to use his profits to pay back his loan. His dream is to grow his business and educate his children.
