Emmanuel is 46 years old, divorced, the father of three children enrolled in school, whose ages vary from seven to 16 years. He has been a shopkeeper in a market in the capital for two years. He sells sports clothing, and his business is going really well. His only problem is that his working capital is so small which prevents him from diversifying his merchandise and forces him to buy in small quantities.

Emmanuel needs this loan to grow his inventory and, at the same time, diversify it. This will increase his sales as well as his profit margin. Part of his profit will be reinvested in his business to expand it and the rest will help him to cover family expenses.
