Afi's story

Afi is a 52-year-old married woman with two children. She sells spices that she buys from the market once a month. To improve her business, she is seeking a loan to increase her purchases of bowls of garlic, bowls of chilli peppers, bowls of cloves and bowls of small spices. Her goal is to manage her customers well and also to have financial autonomy to take care of the children.
