Georges is a 34-year-old man who is engaged to be married and a father of two children, aged 15 months and 4 years old. One of them is already in school. Georges is a merchant in a district in the capital where he has been running a mini-hardware store for nine months. Although his business is young, he has been able to earn a considerable customer base in so little time, thanks to his skills in commerce. But he no longer manages to satisfy his customers because his capital barely allows him to stock up sufficiently for satisfying the growing demand.

To alleviate this problem, he would like this loan to stock up on sufficient quantities of thinners, paints, sheet metal, and many other hardware items. This will enable him to meet the demand and especially to increase his sales and consequently his profits.
