Odette's story

Odette is a 36-year-old young woman. She is engaged and is mother to four children aged between three and 17, all of whom go to school. She is a businesswoman and has been running a small grocery store in a local neighborhood for a year. She hopes to increases her stock by having different varieties of products in order to better meet her clients' expectations and to increase her benefits. It's for this reason that she is asking for this loan. This will help her to buy sacks of salt, flour and rice and palettes of bottled water and canned food. The profits gained will enable her to take care of her family and be able to run a bigger store in the future.
