A loan of $600 helped to buy cases of drinks.


Raymond Elysee's story

Elysée is a 38-year-old married father of four children whose ages vary between 6 and 25. Three of his children attend school. He is a merchant and opened a bar in his area of the capital city, which he has managed for three years. His business runs well thanks to the welcoming atmosphere and his experience, and he has obtained a faithful customer base that is growing with time. His only problem is a lack of stock in terms of drinks, thanks to the small amount of capital he has, which then forces him to buy at retail from the drink stores in the area. Thanks to this loan, he will be able to obtain supplies in bulk from a set of arranged suppliers, which will allow him to diversify his stock of drinks, satisfy his customers, and increase his profit margin. He will save a portion of the profits generated by this investment in order to pay for his children's education, and the rest will be reinvested in his business.
