Merlin Noel
Noel is a young man of 33 who is a shopkeeper. He opened a ready to wear boutique in a quarter of the capital that he has been running for six years. His warm welcome, his creativity, his good advice about clothing, and his experience have gained him quite a large clientele. The growth of his clientele has become a problem for him as he can no longer satisfy all of his customers due to his small capital. This means that he has to go to sales every weekend to purchase his stock retail and to come back to sell it. This does not bring in sufficient return, hence the importance of this loan which will enable him to buy a bundle of clothes for his shop. This would enable him not only to satisfy his customers, but also to make more profit. He would like to reinvest the profits in his business in order to expand it and help his family.
