Gilbert
At 23, Mr. Gilbert G. is a bachelor and has no children. Having left formal schooling after the eighth grade, he began selling hardware and cement at an early age. He is responsible for two of his older brother's children who help him in his business.

Mr. G. has always been trustworthy in reimbursing each loan he has taken out. Very ambitious and hard-working, he now intends to expand his business by selling wholesale to smaller retailers. This necessitates a certain amount of capital, of course, so he is again requesting a loan, this time of $1200. This will allow him to get a maximum of profit from his enterprise and increase his sense of satisfaction.

Très ambitieux et dévoué il a l’intention d’agrandir son commerce en vendant en gros aux petits détaillants. Ce qui nécessite des moyens financiers. Il vient encore une fois solliciter un crédit de $1200. Ceci lui permettra de dégager un profit maximum pour son plein épanouissement.
