Gassan Kadi Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for baguettes in bulk to sell.

Gassan Kadi Group's story

Djénéba, aged 55, is the married mother of four children, all in school. For fifteen years, she has been selling bread as her business. She needs this loan to pay for baguettes in bulk to sell.

This good and honest woman sells in front of the bus stations on major routes. People know her for her experience, as well as her respectfulness and accommodation of customers. In addition, the bread she offers is always warm, baked the same day, and available. And so her business is doing very well.

From her sales, she will have a profit enabling her to save some money and to take care of her family and also to continue in her work. She is now on her third loan contract with ACFIME, and she respects the repayment due dates as planned.
