Albanus's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to add stock of more shoes to sell.

Albanus's story

Albanus, 36, is blessed with a beautiful marriage which has given him two children. His wife is a grocer, while he sells shoes to take care of his family. He enjoys his business because it enables him to meet their needs.

The recent pandemic has affected most businesses such as his, which has a lot of customers and will need a loan to enable it to continue operating well. It is through his business that he is also able to provide employment to others.

Albanus is kindly requesting a loan that will enable him to add stock of more shoes to sell. He previously had three loans which he repaid on time and has promised to do the same with this loan.

His dream is to become a prominent businessman and to educate his children.
