New Day Business Group's story

New Day Business is a group of five borrowers led by George B. M.. He is 38 years old, is married, and has three children aged 7 to 18 years old with educational levels of kindergarten through 6th grade. George was not able to finish college because of a lack of financial support.

George runs a photography business, offering services such as taking passport photos and taking pictures for special occasions. He has been running this business for more than ten years and hopes to own a photo studio in the near future.
