Constant's story

This is a young man, aged 32.  He is married and has three children, ranging in age from 3 to 10.  After his high school diploma but unable to afford university education, he opened a cafeteria, where he serves breakfast, such as omlettes, bread with butter and tea with milk, coffee with milk, spaghetti, and carbonated drinks.  Since his cafeteria is located in a market, he earns 15,000 to 30,000 francs per day.

With this loan, he intends to boost his supplies necessary for his cafeteria including 50 kg of sugar, a dozen units of pasteurized butter and margarine, boxes of milk, boxes of spaghetti, trays of eggs, and all the products that are consumed regularly in his cafeteria.

To advance his business, he often saves money and participates in tontines because his vision is to open a big café in a short time. Later on, he wants to build a house for him family and to put his children into the best schools.
