Mrs. Claire E. was born in 1959 and is a married mother of four (4) children. Her main business activity consists of selling charcoal. Her husband’s small pension is not enough to cover all of her family’s needs. Faced with insufficient means, Mrs. E. is requesting a loan of $1000 in order to build up a large enough inventory to satisfy her customers’ demand. This will allow her to increase her business capacity and to satisfy her clients in the long term, so she can earn a profit and meet her family’s social and economic needs.

Translated from French by Kristina Jackson, Kiva Volunteer.

Née en 1959, Madame E. Claire est mariée et mère de quatre (4) enfants. Son activité principale est le commerce de charbon de bois. La maigre pension de son mari n’arrive pas à couvrir tous les besoins de la famille. Devant ses moyens insuffisants, Madame E. sollicite un crédit de $1000 pour faire un stock consistant afin de satisfaire la demande de sa clientèle. Ceci lui permettra d’accroître sa capacité et aussi de satisfaire à temps ses clients pour dégager une marge bénéficiaire en vue de faire face aux conditions sociales et économiques.
