A loan of $850 helped to buy wooden formwork, props and wood planks for construction.


Samba's story

Samba is about thirty years old and he has been involved in masonry for several years. He learned this trade from his father with whom he worked since he was very young. Since Samba does not have enough capital to open his own business yet, he has been gathering materials from different sources and looking for other ways to always increase his stock of wooden formwork, which is what he needs the most. This loan will help him to purchase some wood planks, props and wooden formwork. Once he has purchased these materials, he will be in a position to rent them or use them himself on construction sites. Samba's wish is to have a stable stock of wooden formwork in order to maximize his profit and to start an important construction company.
