Sylvie Varthan's story

This client is 42 years old, she is married with 6 children between the ages of 4 and 24 years. She opened a cafeteria nearly 20 years ago where she sells bread, sandwiches with milk, coffee, tea, and her potential customers are students, college students and high school pupils from a school complex situated not far from her home.
She has already benefitted from several loans from Hope Congo, and she has repaid them successfully and made considerable savings.

With this new loan, she wishes to continue in the same way by purchasing cartons of powdered milk, cartons of condensed milk, a bag of sugar, trays of eggs, boxes of pasteurised margarine and butter ,boxes of pork and beef pâté, cartons of cheese and also by booking regular bread delivery from a local baker.
She has great ambitions; to open a big restaurant one day . She contributes to the smooth running of her household and is helping her husband to build a house for the family.
