Mireille Colliane's story

Mireille is a 27-year-old young woman. She is single and has two children aged one and six; one of the children already goes to school. She owns a laundry service which she has been managing for two years already. Her know-how, efficiency, and punctuality have allowed her to grow her business as time went.
She has a good customer base, but continually experiences shortages of work supplies since she purchases it retail and it often disadvantages her. This loan will allow her to purchase her supplies (such as detergents, bleach, wrappers…) wholesale, which will in turn enable her to reach her objectives to satisfy her customers and to make a good profit. This profit will allow her not only to provide for her daily needs as well as her family’s, but also to grow her business over time by purchasing in bulk.
