Fredrick and Dwayne are two close businessmen and friends. They both invested in farming and their poultry business made them famous over and above their agricultural ventures and produce. Within the first five years that they started the business, eggs production boomed and they both rented a shop in the city which they used as an egg depot. People from far and near in Nottingham and other famous cities in England visited them to purchase eggs for wholesale prices and resold those in their respective stores in retail to make profit. This continued until tragedy struck. The bird flu virus spread over the city causing a lot of damage in far and near farms. Fredrick had a team of veterinary doctors that were able to prevent the situation for him from going bad to worse, but Dwayne’s veterinary doctor could only do little about the situation. This cost him massive loss of birds and a significant drop in production that he was unable to supply even the egg merchants he had collected money from.
At the beginning of the business chaos, Dwayne reached out to his friend Frederick to help out. Fredrick decided to help him supply some of his merchants and borrowed him money to pay the ones that could not wait longer for the supplies. He did all of this with stern agreement with Dwayne that he was going to pay back when his business bounces back on track.
Time runs fast but things were not all well with Dwayne. Bouncing back became a difficult and an almost impossible challenge. He had not been able to repay Fredrick and that became a blemish on his personality.. As any reasonable man will do, Dwayne reached out to Fredrick expressing his situation. Fortunately for him, he was pitied and Fredrick gifted him the borrowed loans.
Not long after, tragedy struck again. Dwayne had taken money from a merchant to supply him eggs but the merchant had refused to show up until now. There were no eggs to supply and the merchant wanted his money back. He had no option other than to face Fredrick again and ask for help. Almost reluctantly but for the bond of friendship and the understanding of all that happened to Dwayne, he had no option but to help.
Months later, Dwayne was expected to pay back the third loan but he isn’t yet out of his financial problems. He has only two weeks left to pay the money and he begins to run short of ideas on how to. He doesn’t want Dwayne to feel as though he is being taken for granted.
