Léocadie's story

Léocadie is a 41-year-old married woman who is the mother of a 16-year-old child. She opened a perfume shop/office which she has been running for six years already. She often has a problem with a lack of cosmetic products, hair extensions, and weaves in her shop. This drives her customers to the competition due to her meager capital, since she makes her purchases at the retail level.

Her goal being to satisfy her customers and to make a bigger profit, she is requesting a loan to buy her supplies in bulk. This will enable her to reach her goals. The profits derived from this loan will help her to satisfy her needs and those of her child, as well as to save money for growing her business in the future.
