Marie is a seamstress and, two years ago, she opened a sewing shop in one of the neighborhoods of the capital city. She makes school uniforms, which are an important clothing item for students. This is why her activity is most profitable at the beginning of the school year.
This is also the reason why she is requesting a loan to buy a roll of fabric and the sewing material necessary to make uniforms. This loan will allow her to increase her production, and therefore her sales and profits.
Part of the profits generated thanks to this loan will be saved to buy more material for her business. The rest will be used to meet the needs of her family.
