Therese's story

Therese is a 43-year-old woman. She has three children, ages 8 to 18, who currently attend school.

For the past 17 months already, she has been managing a small grocery store, where she sells items her neighbors need for breakfast, candy and other essential items, near her house. Thanks to a good experience in this field of business (small retail), she has attracted a loyal group of customers.

She is requesting this loan to boost her stock of merchandise (several pallets of mineral water, cartons of soap and cans of oil) in order to meet the needs of an increasing number of customers.

With more products to sell, she will be able to increase her profits, expand her business, and take care of her needs as well as those of her family.
