Dominique's story

Dominique N. is a 50 year old married man and father of two children aged 32 and 35. In 1995 he opened a restaurant not far from the market, relying on customers passing through the market, taxi drivers and others. The restaurant is very popular and is open from 6 a.m. to midnight, making between 10,000 and 50,000 francs a day [approximately 11 to 55 USD]. He is asking for a loan in order to stock up on raw materials such as cartons of fresh milk, margarine, butter, eggs, sugar, cheese, nescafe and tea. He hopes to continue making profits and be able to open another restaurant in another area of the city.
