Hantanirina is 44 years old, married and the mother of four children, all in school. Her husband is a bus driver. Last year, to help her husband cover the family's expenses, Hantanirina decided to start a grocery store. To attract more customers, it is important to have a good variety and sufficient quantity of products; that is why she is asking for this loan.

Hantanirina is currently on her second loan to buy additional products. Her primary objective over the medium term is to develop her grocery store.
