A loan of $350 helped to purchase timber for resale.


Gabriel's story

Gabriel does a motorcycle transport business in Olkalau town and has been in business for four years. He is 30 years old, married to Ruth, and they have two children. Besides the motorcycle business, he also sells timber to various construction sites.

This is his fourth loan; he plans to buy timber for resale to various timber yards as well as carpenters. He anticipates making more profits which he will use to pay school fees for his children.

He hopes to buy a big farm and plant trees for timber processing.
