Jefferson Alexander's story

26-year-old Jefferson is an entrepreneur who is always looking for opportunities to get his family ahead in life. One of his biggest dreams was to set up his own business because it is very difficult for him to find a job as a result of some health problems he has.

One of Jefferson's relatives encouraged him to set up a video game and Internet business and, by doing so, he has achieved his dream. Although he didn't have the capital he needed to invest, he did not let this hold him back. He requested a loan and started his business. He has been working in his business for five years now.

One of the main advantages that Jefferson's business has is its location as it is near a number of educational institutions which means he earns more income. His wife is currently helping out with the business during the afternoons as he serves his customers from 8.00am to 9.00pm.

With the aim of expanding his business and improving his family's living conditions, Jefferson is requesting a loan to invest in buying two computers and a small fridge. This will enable him to improve the quality of the service he offers.
