Valerie is a 37-year old woman, married, with children. For four years, she has been managing a bar-restaurant in one of the capital city’s districts. She sells health drinks and food. Over time, she has acquired a good business experience, which allows her to attract a sizeable customer base. Unfortunately, the small size of her stock does not allow her to properly meet customer demand. This is a big disadvantage that causes a dip in her sales and thus in her revenues. Therefore she is seeking a loan in order to buy more cases of beverages as well as chairs to enlarge her business. This will allow her to attract and retain customers, and, more specifically, to increase her sales and her revenues. Her revenues will allow her to expand and equip her business and also provide for her family needs.
