A loan of $625 helped to buy rice and beans in bulk.


Victorine's story

Victorine Z. was born in 1978 in Abomey Calavie, in southern Benin. She is married to Marcellin Dossa, a tailor, and she is the mother of four children. For ten years, she has been living with her family in PK10, a neighborhood in the community of Sèmè-Podji, not far from Cotonou.

Victorine works in food sales. She sells rice and beans near the Cotonou to Porto-Novo autoroute. Her daily sales average around thirty thousand West African Francs, which is about sixty dollars. Victorine would like to buy ten sacs of rice, a sac of beans, and other goods. She likes to buy in bulk because it is cheaper and more efficient. With the help of a loan, Victorine hopes to increase her sales.
