A loan of $550 helped to buy batches of notebooks, batches of record books, boxes of rulers, pencils, and pens.


Jean Pierre's story

This client is 51 years old, married, and is the father of four children who range in age from 18 to 22, all of whom are in college. Already in his third loan cycle, he has successfully repaid prior loans and has saved a considerable amount. His income has increased from 50,000 francs per day to 120,000 francs per day.

With this new loan, on the eve of the beginning of the school year, he wants to increase his stock of office supplies, such as boxes of notebooks, pens, batches of record books, rulers, pencils, reams of paper, and everything his clients need.

Being very ambitious, he plans to open a stationary store in the future to support his children's studies.
