Jean Claude's story
Jean Claude is finished repaying his loan. His business activities were fruitful; he was able to meet his family's needs and also save up some money using his profits. He is happy and endlessly grateful to the lenders for their support. At present, he wants to expand his pig farm and rice crop; he wants to take out another loan. For this next project, he still needs the lenders' support. With the money he will be able to buy medium-sized pigs to fatten up, including their animal feed, and also pay for seed, fertilizer and labor. He will resell his animals to the city butcher and his harvest at the local market. He will continue to bulk up his savings in order to protect his children's future.
