Germaine's story

Germaine is a 64-year-old woman. Her son is 38 years old. She has sold food products in a market square for many years. This business activity allows her to support herself and to better respond to the growing demand of her customers.

She is, therefore, requesting a loan to buy food products, macabo, cassava, etc. She will thus have a consistent stock. With the profits, Germaine will reinvest in her business and meet the needs of her family.
