Hortense Charlotte's story

Hortense Charlotte is a 34 year old woman who is engaged. She opened a café-restaurant which she has been managing for 2 years already in a market of the capital. It's thanks to the café-restaurant that she takes care of her family. Buying catering products retail does not really bring in much for her. Thus the importance of this loan for her business because it will allow her to buy catering products (crates of eggs, small café materials, spaghetti and cases of drinks) to cook her dishes. This will avoid her having to make daily trips and will reduce her taxi expenses. It will also increase her sales, the satisfaction of her clientèle as well as her profits. She will reinvest part of these profits in her business.
