A loan helped to buy 25kg of paraffin wax, 60kg of beeswax to produce more wax, and 500 coco fiber brushes that she will resell at the market.


Perline's story

Perline is still running her business of handcrafted wax. Her business is steadily growing. She added coco fiber brushes to her offerings and they sell well near the town market. She wants to boost her offerings so she can increase her income. She needs to take another loan.

She is asking for the support from the lenders to buy 25kg of paraffin wax, 60kg of beeswax to produce more wax, and 500 coco fiber brushes that she will resell at the market. She plans on using the profits to complete the construction of her house.
