Marie Claire
Marie Claire is 36 years old, single, and a mother of four children, of whom one still goes to school.

Marie Claire is a merchant and has had a small restaurant in the capital for one year already. Buying goods for her restaurant at retail does not work well and does not allow her to satisfy her customers, who continue to grow in number each day. To solve this problem, Marie Claire requested this loan.

This loan will allow her to increase her stock of foodstuffs (sacs of groundnuts and rice, cases of fish, meat, vegetables, and other small necessities to cook her meals).

Earnings will be partly reinvested in the business to help it expand. The rest will allow her to take care of her family.

Marie Claire est une femme de 36 ans, célibataire et mère de quatre enfants parmi lesquels un va encore à l'école. Elle est commerçante et détient un petit restaurant dans un quartier de la cité capitale depuis un ans déjà. Le fait d'acheter les produits de restauration en détail ne rapporte vraiment pas grand chose et ne lui permet plus de satisfaire sa clientèle qui ne cesse de grandir chaque jour. C'est pour palier à ce problème qu'elle sollicite ce crédit. Ce crédit lui permettra d'augmenter le stock de ses denrées alimentaires (sacs de d'arachide, sac de riz, casiers de poisson, viandes, les crudités et le petit nécessaire pour cuisiner ses plats). Les bénéfices qui en résulteront seront en partie réinvestis dans son activité pour l'agrandir et le reste lui permettra de prendre soin de sa famille.
