Gibson's story

Gibson is a military pensioner. He's married and has three children who are already adults. He lives in a house that he owns and supports two grandchildren. He states that with this loan he'll purchase zinc sheets and cement for doing construction work on the house he already lives in. His plans for the future are to build a fence wall around his yard and also a store in order to improve his family's income. His wife will work in the store. He states that he'll repay the loan according to the schedule and he'll request more loans. Aside from receiving the pension, he owns a farm where he grows various types of produce that contribute to his family's income.
