Jhon Alexander's story

Jhon, 27, is a young man with big dreams. He started his own retail business, selling clothing to order, two years ago. He says that he's one of a network of merchants that have teamed up to support one another and that he's now earning a good living. Jhon wants to add to the range of merchandise he sells so that he can meet demand from his customers and increase his revenue. He will use this loan to buy branded merchandise that sells well in this market. The investment will attract new customers that only want up-to-date merchandise of good quality.
