Irene's story

Irene is a young 40 year old woman who has already benefitted from several loans in order to purchase bulk quantities of merchandise to sell. She profited from these loans and reimbursed her previous loans without difficulty and was even able to save some money. She greatly increased her sales, with profits that increased from 25,000 francs to 100,000 francs a day [approximately 26 USD to 110 USD]. She is asking for a fourth loan in order to continue with her activity and purchase bulk quantities of quality cloth in cotton piqué, flowered prints, wool and cloth to make male suits. She hopes to open her own boutique in the future, and continues to save for this goal.
