A loan of $175 helped to buy 70 kilos of tripe.


Lovasoa Julie's story

Julie is 36 years old and married to a bus driver. The couple has four children together, all of whom are at school. Julie sells tripe and began this activity in 2012. Tripe is the type of meat that is most requested by customers in view of its price. The amount of tripe she has on offer is low in relation to customer demand, and for this reason she is requesting a new loan to increase her supply. Her desire is to build up a solid working capital so that she can become financially autonomous in her activity.
