Lotin is a young man who is 23 years old and single. He has been a trader in the local market for the past six months and sells women's underwear. Since he has very little capital he is obliged to go bric-à-brac sales every weekend to buy on a retail basis clothing which he displays on his stall. This does not bring much in and thus explains how important this loan is for his business, because it will enable him to buy wholesale and increase his stock. This in turn will increase his sales and profits. He will save the profits that this loan generates for him so that he can open a shop.
