Lucie Beatrice
Lucie Béatrice is a 41-year-old woman who is unmarried and a mother of two children, 12 and 16 years old, who still go to school. Lucie Béatrice has been managing a bar in a district in the capital for five years where she sells hygienic drinks. Over the course of time, she acquired experience in this domain enabling her to earn a considerable customer base.

Unfortunately, the slight size of her inventory prevents her from suitably meeting the demands of her customer base, which in turn has shrunk significantly. As a result, her sales have dropped, and so has her profits.

She is therefore requesting this loan to buy more cases of drinks, and this will enable her to retain more customers, earn other customers, and especially to increase her sales and profits. This will not only enable her to expand and fix up her building, it will meet the needs of her family.
