Bessoum's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to complete the purchase of a plot of land to be used for housing.
Bessoum is married and has children. She has worked as a trader for six years now. She sells peanuts in bottles, and delivers them every other day to hotels which make up the majority of her customers. This will be Bessoum's third loan with the field partner, and it will enable her to complete the purchase of a plot of land to be used for housing. She already has 300,000 francs CFA put away for this purpose. After analysis of her business figures, she believes that she can borrow and repay this new amount thanks to her business revenue. Bessoum would like to open a shop in the future, she will increase her production and expand her range of customers into other neighbourhoods. She would also like to be able to deliver her goods daily.
