A loan helped to buy 3 bags of cassava powder, a box of fish, and a box of chicken meat for her restaurant.

Marie's story

Marie is a restauranteur, 41 years old, who is married and has two children to support. She gets supplies of ingredient every weekend. This is why she is asking for a loan to purchase sacks of cassava powder; boxes of fish, meat, and poultry; and containers of oil. She wants to grow her customer base and her profits in order to take better care of the family.
