A loan of $600 helped to increase his stock of merchandise (locks, machetes, receptacles, etc.).

Patrick Aimé's story

Patrick is a 25-year-old single man with no children. He is a merchant and opened a small hardware store, that he has now been managing for nine months. He knows his suppliers well, and especially [he knows] his customers, who he has acquired over time thanks to his experience in this area.

But because Patrick does not have much capital, he constantly has disruptions in his stock, because he has to sell it all before he can buy new merchandise. He would like to procure some locks, machetes, receptacles, etc. to have a larger stock, which will allow him to better satisfy the constant demand of his customers and to avoid disruptions.

He will use his earnings not only to expand his business but also to support the needs of his family.
