Perpetue Blandine
Blandine is a young woman who is 35 years old. She is married with two children who are in school. She has been selling clothes from her shop in the capital's market for the past 10 years. Her business is running well, but every Saturday she has to go to the wholesale market to buy the inventory for her shop. This is because she has very limited working capital. The money from this loan will allow her to purchase a bundle of clothes for resale in her shop, which will in turn increase her sales and profits. She plans to invest a part of the profits back into the business and use the rest to take care of her family's needs.
