A loan helped to buy 4 bags of wheat flour and 8 oil cans.

Appoline's story

Appoline is 35 years old, married with two children. She sells wheat flour and cans of oil that she orders once a month in the large markets of rural areas that she resells to buyers in her area. She wants to increase her number of clients and her income, which is why she is asking for a loan to buy more bags of wheat flour and oil cans. She wants to leave her precarious financial situation to have the means to take care of her child.
