David's story

David has a restaurant inside the market. He began his business with the help of his wife, who encouraged him to buy a location in the market. In the beginning, they only sold breakfasts. Now they offer both breakfasts and lunches. He will use the loan to buy industrial-style kitchen equipment and to make improvements to the restaurant. David has faith that his business will grow with the improved service and comfort he will be able to give to his customers. David is 46 years old and married, with four children who are all studying. Life hasn’t been easy for David, working together with his wife to provide food, education, and clothing for his family. David hopes that this loan will help him save up to build his house and to educate to his children.
