Nathalie Rosine's story

Nathalie Rosine is a young woman aged 25. She is single, and is mother to one 3-month-old child. She also has a further two people under her care.

Nathalie Rosine is a hairdresser, and has worked in this business in a local neighborhood for the past year. Her dynamic nature and know-how have allowed her to obtain a considerable customer base. The constant growth in her customers has meant that supply is lower than demand, and she therefore experiences permanent stock shortages. This has led to some of her customers turning to the competition.

A loan is therefore very important for Rosine’s business, as it will allow her to increase her stock of beauty products (boxes of lotions and beauty creams and soaps, as well as shampoo). This will ensure customer satisfaction, increase her sales and, therefore, provide her with a higher profit margin. Rosine will reinvest part of her profits in expanding her business, and the rest will be used to provide for her family.
