Benedic's story

Benedic is a young, 27-year-old woman. She is married and is mother to two children, aged 1 and 9, one of whom is at school. She works as a retailer and opened a perfume store in a neighborhood of the capital four years ago, which she runs. Her little perfume store does fairly well, but she cannot diversify her business and has low stocks of cleansing lotion. This is a problem as, due to rising demand for jewelry and cleansing lotion, she finds it difficult to satisfy her customers’ requests.

It is for this reason that Benedic has requested this loan, which will help her to buy wholesale supplies of cosmetic products, hair extensions and hair weave. This will allow her to meet her customers’ requests, thereby increasing her sales and, consequently, her profits. She will save part of these profits as she plans to open a bar in the near future, and will also use part of the profit to provide for her family.
