Dorine's story

Dorine is 35 years old and a mother of two children, aged two and nine years old. One of the children attends school.

Dorine has been in retail selling soft drinks in her area for three years. She is seeking a loan to increase her capital to buy drinks to satisfy her customers.

She hopes to eventually save up to open a warehouse that sells wholesale, of which the profits will contribute to her family's development.
