Ms. Marie D. is a divorced woman who takes care of three children. As she is quite gifted in the identification and analysis of business opportunities, she has chosen to get into the business of selling fish and condiments, in which she is doing rather well. However, due to her very limited financial means, she is confronted with high demand that she is unable to meet. She currently needs a loan, which will allow her to increase the size of her business in order to increase her revenue. She is requesting a loan of $700, which will give her the capital to buy and resell fish and condiments. This new possibility will allow her to meet not only the needs of her customers but also those of her family. This will allow Ms. D. to live off the fruits of her labor and to better meet her immediate needs, notably the feeding, clothing, health and education of her children.

Très douée dans l’identification et dans l’analyse des opportunités d’affaires, elle s’est choisie pour activité principale la vente de poissons et condiments qui lui réussit assez bien. Cependant, par ses moyens financiers très limités, elle est confrontée à beaucoup de demandes qu’elle est incapable de satisfaire. Elle a besoin aujourd’hui d’un appui financier qui lui servira à augmenter la taille de son activité en vue d’accroître son chiffre d’affaires. Elle sollicite un crédit de $700 qui lui permettra de disposer d’un fonds de commerce pour l’achat et la revente du poisson et des condiments. Cette nouvelle possibilité lui permettra de satisfaire non seulement les besoins de sa clientèle mais aussi ceux de sa famille. Ceci permettra à Madame D. de vivre du fruit de son travail et de mieux subvenir à ses besoins immédiats, notamment: l’alimentation, la santé, l’habillement et l’éducation de ses enfants.
