Kafui L., age 25, is married and the mother of two. She is a beautician by training. But without the means to open her own shop, she started selling beauty products. Despite insufficient revenues, she is making sure that her sister goes to school and that her mother's needs are met. Conscious of this responsibility, she works incessantly to meet the expectations of her customers. Today, facing the demand for new products, she realized that it would be profitable to include her skills with her business. To do so, she would like to buy some new products to sell and also certain supplies. And so she is requesting a loan of $1000 that will allow her to buy the necessary items. This would increase her income in order to provide for her family.
