Nelson's story

Nelson is a happily married man who is blessed with two young kids. To provide for his family he runs a wood workshop where he makes various furniture ranging from beds to chairs to wardrobes. He enjoys his business and his craftsmanship. He also gives employment to other young men and trains them.

Nelson is seeking a loan to enable him to add stock of wood to his business, which he intends to pay back using the profits he makes from his business. This will enable him to always have ready-made furniture for sale. He dreams of expanding his business and educating his children.
