A loan of $650 helped to increase his inventory of food.

Séjour Olivier's story

Séjour is a 42-year-old man who is married and the father of 4 children aged between 1 and 10. He has been running a restaurant for 12 years. It is thanks to his business that he is able to take care of his family. He is not able to make a large profit because he has to buy his ingredients retail. This is why this loan is important to him, as it will enable him to increase his inventory of food (trays of eggs, milk, bags of groundnuts, one bag of rice and other ingredients he needs to make his meals). Buying in bulk will help him to avoid having to travel every day and will decrease his taxi expenses, as well as increasing his profits. He will reinvest part of his profit in his business so that he can expand his restaurant and part of his profit will enable him to meet his family's needs.
