A loan of $325 helped to purchase merchandise for his hair salon.


François's story

François is a Cameroonian of 30 years old. He owns and operates a hair salon for men in a corner of the city, where he has been for the past three years. Dynamic and warm, he has seen his clientele grow over the years and can no longer satisfy their demand.

This loan will allow him to increase his stock of merchandise by purchasing cosmetics and perfumes. The income François earns will allow him to expand his salon and to get married in a few years.
