A loan of $1,275 helped a member to purchase more stock for his business.

Omore Jenga Self-Help Group's story

Oscar O. is an average-aged man who is married with a wife and six children.

He owns a small retail shop which he started ten years ago, after accumulating savings from the little money he earned while working as a shelf attendant for a supermarket. Oscar’s small retail shop sells household goods that his customers can use on a daily basis. The shop mostly stocks food and toiletries.

Oscar is a hardworking man. From the little profits that he gets from his business, he is still able to feed, clothe, and educate his children. With the help of the loan, Oscar will be able to add more stock for his business, which he hopes will generate more income. His long-term business vision is to open up a wholesale unit in the future.
