Titus's story

Titus is a 26 year old single man. He opened a grocery shop in a neighborhood of the capital which he has been managing for 5 years already. His small shop functions thanks to his warm welcome, his experience in this domain and the clientèle that he has gained with time. His clientèle is becoming important and he doesn't manage to satisfy it anymore because of the smallness of his capital which obliges him to buy retail. He is requesting this loan to strengthen his little business, to diversify his merchandise (rice, salt, mineral water, cartons of sugar, sweets,...) and to be able to increase his profit margin. He will reinvest part of his profits in the business to cover the needs of his sector and the other part will allow him to meet his daily needs and those of his family.
