To help the owner replace old production equipment with new one, thereby enabling him to offer customers better service.
The owner has been successfully able to expand the business by partnering with the Maison Henri Deschamps bookstore, one of the largest bookstores in the country. The business has created job opportunities for six people.
Since the equipment that the owner is currently using is significantly old, the service has been slow given the unreliability of the machines. With the acquisition of new production materials and equipment, school children, professionals, college and university students, teachers, and other people living in Mirebalais and surrounding areas in the low Central Plateau will have the chance to benefit from better and faster services. Additionally, the owner will hire two more people to expand the laminating, word processing, and bookbinding services. With additional employees, he is aiming also to sell didactic materials, or textbooks, at wholesale prices to his customers.
