Merlin's story

Merlin is a 32-year-old man, who is engaged to be married and is the father of five children aged between 2 and 12. Three of his children go to school. He works selling ice creams in the capital, and has done so for 10 years. It is thanks to this that he is able to provide for his family.

Merlin's business is doing well, but he needs capital to increase his sales and his profits. He plans to reinvest part of these profits in expanding his business, and will use the rest to provide for his family.
