Madame Hoindossi K. is a very dedicated woman. Married to a farmer, she is mother to five children and supports her two younger sisters who are apprentices. She has great difficulty covering the family expenses, as her business—selling basic products—does not bring in sufficient revenue due to a lack of financial resources. Despite the fact that her business is flourishing, Madame K. could make more of it. Wishing to strengthen her business, she is requesting a $400 loan to expand her display of goods and stock up on food products in order to meet the needs of her clientele. The granting of this loan will help Madame K. to improve her family’s standard of living.
