Rosalie Christelle
Rosalie is an unmarried 28-year-old mother of one child. She has been a merchant in an area of the capital for five years, and sells braised fish. Her business is flourishing thanks to her know-how in the field and her experience, which have allowed her over time to expand her business and acquire a faithful clientele. But the small size of her capital does not allow her to obtain supplies in bulk, which creates constant stock shortages and an increasingly large decline in her clientele. To avoid a definitive loss of her customers, she is seeking this credit in order to obtain supplies of fish in bulk, which will allow her to avoid stock shortages and also retain her current customers and attract new ones. The profits generated from this investment will allow her to expand her business and also provide for her family.
