Clebert's story

Clebert is a 32-year-old man, single, and a father of two children, who are 11 months and 3 years old. For a number of years, he has been a merchant in a local market, where he sells secondhand clothing and clothing for young people, men, and women (according to the seasons and to what's available).

Because he does not have much capital, he has to go to the outlets each weekend in order to buy the clothes at retail that he displays in his stall. This is not really profitable, [and explains] the importance of a loan for his business. A loan will allow him to buy a mixed bale [of clothing].

He will use the earnings that the loan will bring him to expand his clothing shop and to support the needs of his family.
