Blessed Group's story

Jeshua is a 41-year-old man who is married with two children, ages 17 and 10. Both children are going to school. His wife works at a hospital as a nurse. He also takes care of his mother who is in a rural area.

Jeshua sells cosmetics at the flea market, which is in town. He purchases his goods from South Africa. He has been in this business for four years now. He has two employees at the flea market. He faces a challenge of debtors not paying him back in time. It also takes a long time to travel to and from South Africa to purchase goods.

He has applied for a loan to buy cosmetics for sale. In the next five years, he sees himself owning a beauty therapy shop with qualified staff. With the profit from the business, he will be able to take his children to a better school as well as buy another housing stand to build a house for his family.
