Helene Alice's story

Helene is a 35-year-old woman, single, and the mother of two children, ages 6 and 4. Both her children attend school.

For the past two years, she has run a small business - a hairdressing salon - in one of the neighborhoods of the capital city.

Thanks to her warm welcome, to her expertise, and to the low prices of her services, she has managed to attract an increasingly large number of customers. However, she is currently having a hard time meeting their needs since she is constantly out-of-stock.

This is why she is requesting this loan, in order to increase her stock of goods (hair extensions, weaves...). She hopes that this loan will help her to rebuild some customer loyalty and to boost her profits. She plans to use her profits to expand her business and maybe hire some employees.
