Marie's story

Marie is 54 years old and lives in the town of West Point. She is single and has six children from 2 to 15 years old. Only five of them attend school and they all live with her. For two years Marie has had a table in the local market where she sells Iron soap (Local soap made from caustic and palm oil). Sometimes she has many customers and makes good money and sometimes it's very slow. She started selling for her mother and later decided to sell on her own. This is the first time Marie requested a loan and she plans to purchase caustics and palm oil for her business. She wants to improve and continue growing her business. She wants to give her children a good education.
