Joseph is 70 years old, disabled, and an entrepreneur. He runs a small shop and uses the profits to support his 100-year-old mother, Anna, who is blind.
Age International invested in Joseph by giving him a small loan, which he used to start his shop business. Joseph pays back a small amount of interest to his local community – and they use the money to help other older people in need.
‘The recent drought that affected some people did not affect my family since I have this business. If I hadn’t received the loan, I don’t know how we would have survived.’
