A loan of $325 helped to augment the stock of palm oil.

Casimir's story

Casimir is a 44-year-old married father of a 12-year-old child. He is a shopkeeper and opened a counter in a market in the capital that he’s been running for 2 years. His small business works due to his warm welcome, his experience in this area, and the clientele he has acquired over time. The latter has become sizeable, so much so that he can no longer satisfy them because of the small size of his capital which forces him to buy at retail. He is seeking this loan to augment his stock of palm oil because it’s a heavily consumed product by those around him and to be able to increase his profit margin. He will reinvest a portion of his profits back into this business to cover the needs of his business and another portion will allow him to meet his daily needs and those of his family.
