Victor's story

Victor is a 24-year-old man and a retailer. He has a small grocery shop in a district of town which he has been running for 2 years. His small business works thanks to his warm welcome, the experience he has in his line of work and the customer base that he has built up over time. The latter is becoming large, and he is no longer able to satisfy his customers due to the small size of his capital which forces him to buy products retail. He is requesting this loan so that he can strengthen his little business, diversify his merchandise - by buying items like rice, salt, mineral water, cartons of sugar and sweets - and increase his profit margin. He will reinvest part of his profits into his business so that he can cover his business needs, and the other part of his profits will allow him to meet his daily needs and those of his family.
