He has opened a small restaurant in one of the districts of the capital city and has been managing it for two years. His business is going well and allows him to provide for his family. His challenge is his small capital, which prevents him from better meeting the needs of his growing customer base. This is why he needs a loan to expand the stock of food times (cases of beverages; crates of fish, meat, and poultry). This will allow him to increase not only his sales volume but also his profit margin. The revenues earned will be reinvested in his business for further expansion.
