Bengnongonté Group's story

Mariam is 55 and a widowed mother of six children. She sells maize flour and has been in that business for 20 years. She needs a loan to buy some sacks of maize to transform into flour for resale.

Mariam is a hard-working, dynamic woman known for her experience. She is also respectful and welcoming to her customers and she makes sure that the flour she sells is well-made and very clean. She sells the flour at a price that is less than others' prices; all that makes her business run smoothly.

Mariam has been taking good care of her family since her husband died and left her alone with the children for whom she is the only breadwinner. After her sales, she will have a profit that will allow her to put aside savings, to take care of her family, and also to continue her business. She is on her second loan agreement with ACFIME and her reimbursements have been made normally.
