Roomel David is married with two children, ages 7 and 14. For the last ten years he has owned and operated a jewelry making business. After working for another jeweler years ago, Roomel David saved his earnings and bought a spot for his own shop in the central market where he can create and sell his jewelry. The loan proceeds will be used to buy additional materials to make more products to sell.
Roomel David’s dream is to construct a house on a piece of land he already owns and to provide a bright future for his children.
