Gergette is a young woman, age 29, who is married and the mother of four children. Her children are between the ages of 8 and 2, and three of them attend school.

For the past ten months, Gergette has been working as a retailer in one of the neighborhoods of the capital city.

Thanks to her enthusiasm and to the quality and reasonable prices of the goods that she sells, she has managed to attract a large group of customers. However, she is losing customer loyalty because she is constantly out-of-stock. This is why she is requesting this loan, so that she can increase her stock of goods (she specifically wants to buy cans of paint and some shovels).

She plans to reinvest part of her profits into her business. The rest will be used to help her husband meet the needs of the household.
