A loan helped to buy 56 sacks of charcoal.


Monique Razanakolona's story

Monique is 36 years old. She is married to a bus driver. The couple has two children in school. Monique has, for a business, sold charcoal since January 2018. Besides delivery to regular clients, she also sells at a point of sale near her house. The price of stocking up has not stopped going up these last few months, and, to be able regularly meet her customters' demand, it is necessary to have a sufficient stock, hence this new request for a loan to acquire 56 supplementary sacks of charcoal. The goal is to build savings in order to be independent in the business.
