Xavier Judicael
This client is 31, married and the father of two children aged two and eight years old. At the end of his middle school studies, lacking means and saddled with responsibilities, he got into making brooms. He buys broom handles and palm straw from his suppliers, empty food tins and tacks to make brooms that he sells wholesale.

His workshop is in his home and he takes in from 45,000 to 100,000 francs per day. Since his production capacity is low, on receiving his loan he is going to buy bundles of straw, 10 kilos of tacks, wood and other accessories to make his brooms. He has a lot of demand and in future he would like to be able to make at least 100 brooms per month, raise his production capacity and also lower his sales prices.

With the profit he will be able to save to pay for his children's schooling and build a house for his family.
