Linus Alphonse's story

Alphonse is a 37 year old man, married and father to 4 children whose age varies between 5 and 15 years. Three of his children go to school. He opened and has been managing a bar in a neighborhood of the capital for 2 years already. His kindness, his warm welcome and his good relationships have brought him a large clientèle which he has trouble satisfying because of the permanent stock shortages.

He is requesting a loan to increase his stock of merchandise and his revenue in order to satisfy his numerous clientèle. The profits resulting from this loan will allow him to reinvest, diversify his business and ensure his children are able to go to school.
