Franklin's story

Franklin is married and has two children. He has two jobs. He’s a taxi driver and a barber. His barber shop is set up in part of his living room. Profits from the taxi made the shop possible. He got the idea for the shop because sometimes fares in the taxi aren’t all that good and the barber shop allows him to even out his expenses. He has been in seven Afodenic cycles which have allowed him to service his car and make small home improvements. This loan will be used to buy equipment and supplies to provide better service in his barber shop. He will buy the following: a barber chair for adults, a child’s barber chair, trimmers, a brush, gel, Gillette blades, talcum powder, cologne and others thereby modifying the attention he can provide. His long range plan is to build a structure to make the barber shop independent from the house. This is why he wants to get more customers and earn more.
