Antoinette Odile
Antoinette is a young, 37-year-old woman. She is single and mother to two children aged 10 and 8. They both go to school. She works in retail, operating in a neighborhood of the capital for 10 years, where she sells fresh food (tomato, peanuts, ginger, peppers, herrings) and other foodstuffs.

Antoinette’s business works well, but brings in little income because of her constant stock shortages, a result of her low capital. This is why she needs financing, so that she can buy bulk items such as crates of tomatoes, bags of peanuts and all she needs for her business, as well as kitchen utensils and small items for the dishes she cooks every day. This will increase her sales, and the profit will help her to save so that she can open a restaurant.
