Yaw's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To buy gallons of fuel for supply.
Yaw O. K. is 45 years old, married, and a father of four children who are currently in school. He sells fuel in gallons in the community where he lives. The distance from the village to the big town is quite great, so what he does is buys the fuel in gallons and resells it to the commercial vehicle drivers who plight that road to pick up passengers. Yaw has been in this business for the past three years. He says what he does is risky because he does not have a bigger container to store the fuel; instead he uses smaller gallons which can catch fire. He requests the loan to buy bigger fuel containers so that he can store larger quantities of fuel for his customers. It seems Yaw is the only fuel supplier on that road; therefore the demand for fuel is high. Through this business he has supported two of his kids who are in junior high school. He believes with this loan he would be more resourced to save more in supporting his kids in school. Yaw would be grateful for your assistance.
