Dassi
Ms. Dassi A. sells firewood. She is a mother of four children, who she has been raising for twenty years. Her husband, who does not have stable employment, does not earn enough income to meet the family’s needs. So Ms. Dassi A. works relentlessly to help her husband manage the family’s expenses. The business of selling firewood is very prosperous, but her income barely makes a dent in the household expenses.



Faced with the ever-growing demand of her customers, Ms. A. is no longer able to satisfy everyone by her own means. That is why she is requesting a loan of $850 to build a sufficient stock of firewood and sell it when there is a shortage. This way, she could increase the size of her business and improve her family’s living conditions.
