Abel is a 44 year old man, engaged and a father. He opened a food store in a neighborhood of the capital which he has been managing for 2 years already. His little shop functions thanks to his warm welcome, his experience in this domain and the clientèle which he gained with time. His clientèle is becoming large and he doesn't manage to satisfy it anymore because of his small capital which obliges him to buy retail. He is requesting this loan to strengthen his small business to diversify his merchandise (rice, salt, mineral water, cartons of sugar) and be able to increase his profit margin. He will reinvest part of his profits in his 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.
