Tchatchouang is a 62-year-old man and the father of seven children, from 6 to 24 years old. Three of his children still go to school. He also has three of his nephews to support. He has been a merchant in a district in the capital for eight years where he manages a bar. His business is operating normally, thanks to his warm accommodations and his experience, which enables him to capture a significant customer base.

However, the considerable growth of his customer base barely allows him to meet the demand because of his meager capital funds. And so the loan at this time is important for his business, since it will help him to increase the number of cases of drinks (50), which will enable him not only to meet customer demand but also to increase his sales and his profits.

He will reinvest part of his profits in his business, and the rest will enable him to meet the day-to-day needs of his family.
