Youness has been the owner of a shoe store in his town since 2000. He’s 46 years old, married and has three unemployed children. His shop is situated in a busy area so, over the years, he has had a growing number of clients pass by his shop and buy shoes. He's always trying to fill his shop with the latest collections to attract more clients. Today, Youness is asking to borrow $1,000 to add new decor and renovate his shop in order to attract more clients and increase his income.
