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

A loan helped to purchase a truck of banana and plantain clusters.

Vincentine's story

Vincentine is 41 years old, engaged and the mother of three children aged between one and eighteen years old - two of whom attend school. She is a trader and is engaged in retail sales where she sells fresh foodstuffs (plantains) in a market on the main square. She would like to grow her business by going to purchase the goods herself in the countryside (a truckload of banana and plantain clusters). That will avoid her being out of stock, as she often is. This loan will allow her not only to meet the needs of her already growing customer base, but also to increase her profits. Profits which will help her meet the family's living expenses, to save for their education and, in time, to invest the remainder in growing her business.
