Abib is a young shopkeeper who has been in business for more than 10 years. He is single and has no children. However, Abib is a breadwinner and works to earn an income, which helps him improve his own living conditions as well as those of his relatives. He starts his day at 8am in the morning and finishes it at 10pm at night. He manages a shop where he sells a little of everything: lamps, skin cream for women, bed sheets, radio cassettes, defrizzing cream. He is asking for a loan from the branch, where he is a member. The requested amount will be used to buy ready to wear outfits and dishes that will satisfy the demand of his clientèle and at the same time help him diversify the products he sells. He has already paid back six previous loans. He wants to open a second shop to strengthen his business.
