Seraphine's story

Séraphine is 39 years old. She is married and the mother of five children, two of whom are in elementary school and 2 of whom are in middle school. The subject business of our financing is food. The promoter has been in retail sales for six years in a local corner. We can see in the photo she sells a variety of products. It is her only source of income and with a family of five children to feed she cannot make ends meet. It is for this reason that she came to ask for this loan to purchase 10 bags of rice, 5 cartons of soap and vegetable oil, to build up her stock of merchandise. This new loan will increase her clientele and increase her returns. With these profits she would like to expand her business to better take care of her family.
