Answer preview

Jamal spends a considerable portion of his childhood in the community. Courtesy of this, he was able to not only share in their joy but also witness the tribulations they are forced to deal with due to the nature of their interactions with RTO businesses (Hill, 2019). Even though he eventually moved away, Jamal still tried to maintain contact with the community. Therefore, unlike other RTO business persons, Jamal has a responsibility to the community since they played a vital role in shaping his life during Jamal’s formative years. In addition, his family members still reside within the neighborhood, and as such, Jamal has a responsibility to ensure the unethical practices of RTO businesses do not harm them.
