A loan of $200 helped to buy bags of onions and garlic.


Isaac's story

Isaac is a young man aged 29, who is a married father of a 2-year-old child. He also has another person under his care. He has worked in a market in the capital for 12 years, where he sells onion and garlic on a retail basis. His retail sale business has done fairly well, and his fighting spirit and experience have brought him a significant amount of customers over the years.

However, in light of the constantly growing demand from his customers, he would like to start working in wholesale, while keeping his retail business going. This is why he has requested this loan, which will allow him to buy bags of onion and garlic wholesale. This will increase not only his sales, but also his profits. He will reinvest part of these profits to expand and diversify his business, and will use the rest to help provide for his family.
