Anne Marguerite
Anne, age 38, is unmarried and the mother of three children. After her training period, she opened a small sewing workshop, which has been doing good business for ten years. She also does embroidery but lacks tools to complete her orders faster and meet customer demand in a timely fashion.

This is why she's seeking a loan to buy fabrics and notions (pins, needles, lining, thread, …) so that she can avoid going to the market all the time, and focus on sewing and selling to her customers.

The profits earned thanks to this loan will enable her to not only buy sewing supplies and expand her business, but also provide for herself and her family.

Anne est une jeune femme de 38 ans célibataire mère de 3 enfants. Après sa formation, elle a ouvert un petit atelier de couture qui fonctionne bien depuis 10 ans déjà, elle fait aussi la broderie mais n'a pas tout le matériel pour aller plus vite avec ses commandes et pouvoir satisfaire sa clientèle à temps. C'est pour celà qu'elle sollicite un crédit pour s'acheter des tissus et le petit matériel de coutures (épingles, aiguilles, doublure, fil...) qui l'évitera d'aller au marché tout le temps, elle pourra coudre et revendre à ses clients. Le bénéfice tiré de ce crédit lui permettra non seulement de s'acheter son petit matériel de couture pour agrandir son activité, mais aussi de satisfaire certains de ses besoins ainsi que ceux de sa petite famille.
