Gisele's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy calling credit.
Gisele is a young woman of 36 years, married and the mother of 3 children between the ages of 1 and 7. Two of her children already attend school. Gisele has run a small call box in a neighborhood of the capital for 7 years and also owns a small stall from which she sells soap, stock cubes, sugar, salt, and other items. Gisele buys calling credit from the telecom operators twice a week, on average. However, the demand for calls and credit is steadily increasing, and she is having problems fulfilling her customers' demands as her capital does not allow her to restock properly, which produces constant inventory problems and is causing her the gradual loss of her customers. Gisele is requesting this loan so that she can get more calling credit which will enable her to retain and grow her customer base and, consequently, her profits. These profits will allow her to reinvest in her small stall in order to grow the business, and also to meet her family's needs.
