Hélène Nadège's story

Hélène Nadège is a young, 27-year-old woman who is engaged, and the mother of a 14-year-old child who goes to school. She has been a restaurateur for one year. Thanks to her to warm welcome and the good quality of the food she sells, and especially the prices she charges, she has built up a considerable customer base which is becoming more and more demanding. Her small turnover does not enable her to address the various complaints of her clientèle. This loan will enable her to buy cases of drinks and food (cartons of fish, bags of rice and other ingredients for meals) so that she can diversify and increase the quantity of the ingredients she puts in her meals, in order to satisfy her customers and also to increase her profit margin. She will reinvest part of her profits into her business in order to expand it, and the rest will enable her to meet her family's needs.
