A loan helped to buy 15 rolls of strap to make baskets.


Michael's story

Michael, 24, lives with his partner and has 2 young children. They live in the family home in a neighbourhood situated in the outskirts of the town. Michael is talented in making baskets. He creates baskets made out of straps which sell well. He sells his products in the local market while his wife is engaged in pig farming.

This is Michael's second loan that he needs to increase his financial capital. His business of producing and selling baskets is growing and he needs finances to enable him to meet the demand. He is asking lenders to help him buy 15 rolls of straps.

Michael's priority is the expansion of his business to increase the family revenue.
