Mamisoa Julienne's story

Julienne, age 39, is married. Her husband sells secondhand clothing. They have three children together, two of them attend school whereas the youngest is still a toddler.

Julienne's business consists in selling potatoes, wholesale or retail (depending on customers' orders). She has 19 years of experience in this field. This business actually requires lots of funds to cover customers' orders, such as when ordering 2900 kg of potatoes. Her goal is to put more money away.
