Marie's story

Marie, age 43, is divorced and the mother of four children. She makes pies that she sells and she orders charcoal from farmers to resell in town.

She would like a loan to buy bags of flour, cans of cooking oil, egg trays and bags of charcoal. Little by little, she intends to lift her family out of misery and, at the same time, develop her business.
