Marie Anne
Marie Anne is 57 years old. She is engaged and is also the mother of four children. She owns her own restaurant, which she has run for years. It's thanks to this business that she is able to look after her family. Buying items for the restaurant in small quantities doesn't bring in much revenue for her. This is where the importance of this loan comes in. This loan will allow her to increase her stock of foodstuffs (sacks of peanuts, one sack of rice, a selection of fish and meats, raw vegetables and little extras needed for cooking her dishes) as well as new equipment. This will remove the need for daily shopping trips and cut down on her taxi expenses. This will also increase her profits. She will reinvest part of her profits into her business and the rest will help her meet her family's needs.
