Lincoln Arley's story

Lincoln is a hard-working 44-year-old man who works as an independent merchandiser. He has a small stall where he sells video-game movies. It's located in the city centre. Lincoln originally started out by selling belts, but he decided to change products because of the stiff competition that he faced. He purchased a surplus of video-game movies, and then gradually started to introduce music videos and game consoles into his stock. He begins work at 9:00 am and works from Monday to Saturday. This is how he generates enough income to support his family, which consists of his spouse and their two children. In addition, with a lot of effort and organization, he was able to get enough money to buy some properties, which provide him with additional income by way of rental payments. His drive and dedication have helped him to get ahead. For this reason he is always seeking out new alternatives to continue moving forward, such as the opportunity that the loan he is requesting will provide. He will use the loan to buy wholesale stock (video-game movies and music videos) in order to stock up for the impending holiday season, when demand for entertainment items goes up. Lincoln's earnings also increase significantly toward the end of the year, which benefits his whole family and gives him the opportunity to offer them better living conditions and well-being.
