Rosine's story

This client, 41 and single, has two children aged 17 and 21. She got into selling office supplies and such at a very young age, when she left off her studies in high school. She has already received several loans, has reimbursed them successfully, and put aside considerable savings. With this fourth loan, she is going to expand her stock of merchandise, for example, boxes of paper, cartons of notebooks, pens of all sorts and felt-tip pens, etc. She displays her wares not far from the administrative offices and various primary school, middle schools, and technology institutes, and she has customers who have been buying from her for years and who sometimes buy on credit. Very motivated and possessing a good character, she means to go far and she is taking over paying education fees for her two children who are already at university.
