Alice Therese's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more stock of fresh produce (macabo taro).

Alice Therese's story

Alice is a 37 year old single woman, and the mother of two children aged 6 and 13 years old. She is a saleswoman and has been working in retail sales of seasonal fresh produce (cassava, plantains) in a local market for 14 years.

She knows the suppliers well, as well as her customers whom she has acquired over time thanks to her experience in this area. However, she constantly finds herself with a shortage of stock, because she has to sell all her merchandise before she can buy more, due to her limited capital. She wishes to buy nets of macabo taro to have a good stock. This will allow her to better satisfy her customers' constant demand and avoid interruptions in supplies.

Alice will save her profits to not only increase her business but also meet her family's needs.
