A loan helped to buy food ingredients for her restaurant business.

Astou's story

Astou runs a restaurant. She is married and has children. She is a client of the field partner, UIMCEC, and this will be her third loan designed to improve her business. She will buy a large quantity of food ingredients which she uses every day in her business - pepper, garlic, onions, potatoes, etc. Astou began her business in 2007 with less than 100,000 francs CFA to buy kitchen utensils. She starts work at ten in the morning and closes at ten in the evening. She employs two girls to help her with the cooking. Astou pays all of the restaurant invoices and the other costs associated with running a business. If the restaurant is a success, Astou would like to build her own home and move the restaurant there.
