Bernard's story

Bernard is a 42-year old man, who is single and father to three children, whose ages range from seven to 14 years old and who all go to school. He has had a basketry business in one of the town's districts for almost 22 years and has good experience in this field. Introduced to this activity by his father, he weaves (or makes) pieces of furniture which he then displays. He also works to order. With this loan he would like to buy 14 pieces of plywood, five boxes of varnish, as well as paint, so he can boost his stock and finish orders on time. His ambition is to build a workshop and a large showroom.
