La Fidelite 2 (#2) Group's story

Serge is 45, single, and has 3 children ages 6 to 18. All of his children currently attend school. He is representing the La Fidelite 2 (#2) Group. Serge owns a laundry business and has been operating for over 10 years! He will use the loan to buy another washing machine.
