A loan of $825 helped to buy wholesale supplies such as snacks, sweets, biscuits and soft drinks.

John Jairo's story

John has been running his own business for about 15 years. He sells products such as snacks, soft drinks, beer and mobile phone minutes. His shop is in a busy, well-known area, which has meant good results, and this allows him to support his family.

He is now asking for a loan to invest in wholesale supplies to buy items such as snacks, sweets, biscuits and soft drinks. This will allow him to obtain supplies for his business to satisfy demand at the approaching end of year, which will help him make better sales and improve his income. John wants to carry on working hard in his business and continue to make enough money to improve life for himself and his family.
