Pauline Labelle's story

Pauline, a woman of 23 years old, is single and has no children. She has owned and operated a beauty salon in a downtown location for three years. Thanks to her determination and dynamic spirit, she has managed to turn a lot of her neighbors into faithful clients and has gradually grown this clientele to the point where she feels a need to grow her stock of merchandise. She would like to use this loan to buy beauty products (hair oil, straightener, etc.) so as to satisfy her customers and her own expectations for her results. Part of the profit will be ploughed back into the business and part used to cover her family needs (education, nutrition, rent).
