Famille Mayange Group's story

Urbain retails various items in his kiosk. He started this in 2015 upon church friends' suggestion and after selling the harvest from his family's fields.

Currently, the family's entire finances depend on the business. Urbain is requesting a loan to stock up on various products in order to satisfy his clients and provide for his family.
