A loan of $1,025 helped to open a cold storage room and purchase fish, beef, pork chops and poultry..


Sylvain's story

This client is forty two years old and single, without children. Having finished his university studies and not finding any work, he created a small business based on the retail sale of food products, including fresh food.

He has benefited from several loan cycles, and has managed a butcher shop with a capacity for sales and effective repayments. With an equally strong request, the fourth loan has permitted him to open a cold storage room. He purchased boxes of fresh food like fish, beef, pork chops and poultry.

He plans to save a lot, and right now he is in the process of accomplishing his objectives little by little. Exemplary in his characteristics as a businessman, he maintains friendly relationships and good cooperation in his community.
