Benoit is a 37-year-old man who is married and the father of 3 children aged between 4 and 10. He has been selling shoes for children, men and women (depending on the seasons and the contents of the bundles) at a local market for 13 years. Due to the small size of his capital, he is forced to go to the unpacking each weekend to buy shoes in retail amounts, which he then displays on his stall. This does not allow him to earn much, hence the importance of this loan for his business because it will allow him to buy a mixed bundle of shoes. He will save the profits generated thanks to this loan to open a shoe shop.
