Hilaire's story

Hilaire is a young man from Cameroon, age 30. He is married and has no children. He has had a mobile hardware store for about two years now in his village. With this loan, he would like to buy some mechanical keys, lightbulbs, locks, bolts, and electrical cables in order to increase his stock and better serve his increasing customer base. His income allows him to provide for his family's needs. His ambition is to open a hardware store in a stable location in order to start selling cement, which is a product in high demand for hardware stores.
