Rachelle's story

This is a 26-year-old client who is married. She has three children to support. Having considered her family expenses, she started a small pastry shop to support her family. She makes brioches every two day. Sales range from 20,000 to 45,000 francs a day.

Once her loan is granted, she is going to buy 2 sacks of flour, a 50-kg container of margarine, 50 kg of milk, some pouches of fine salt, and some bags for packaging purposes. She is also thinking of rounding out ten new aluminum molds in order to increase her inventory of brioches, given that the demand is great, and the number of customers only climbs.

She is saving a lot of money because she is thinking of opening a tea shop in the future and saving more money. This is because she is thinking of sending her children to a pastry school, so as to establish a family enterprise over time and to increase the number of delivery outlets.
