A loan helped to buy a Diesel engine to repair his vehicle.


Balla's story

Balla has worked in transport for more than nine years. He is very assiduous in his work, and starts his day at 6 a.m. and finishes at 7 p.m. He is married and a father of a family. He takes care of all his family's daily expenses and his children's school fees.

Balla is on his second loan and makes repayments on time.

With this loan, he wants to repair his car by buying a Diesel engine.

He would like in the future to buy another vehicle to expand his car fleet and increase his savings. Then he would be able to improve his family's living conditions and build a house.
