Biri Ila
Biri is a single 29-year-old man and the father of a three-year-old child. He opened a restaurant that he has been running for eight months. It is thanks to this restaurant that he is able to take care of his family and his child. However, the restaurant's location is not very comfortable, and it is not big enough, which makes his business difficult, as his customers are increasingly numerous and ever-more demanding.

Hence the importance of this loan for his work, as it allows him to increase his stock of food (trays of eggs, oil, a sack of rice, a pallet of fish, meats, vegetables) and to purchase the small necessities needed to cook his dishes. Biri plans to reinvest a part of his income into his business and he will use the rest to help provide for his family.
