Agathe's story

Agathe is a 48-year-old woman, a widow and mother of five children who are between 25 and 16 years old. Three of her children are still in school. For 11 years she has been a retailer in a market in the area where she sells used clothing (children's clothing).

Her activity is successful thanks to the good quality of her merchandise and to the customers she has developed and whose loyalty she has secured over time. She would like to increase her stock of goods with the approaching holiday season; this will not only increase her sales, but also her profit margin.

The profits will be reinvested in part to expand her activity but the rest will allow her to provide for the needs of her family.
