Ines Sylvie
This 38-year-old woman is a single mother of two children, a 3-month-old and a 5-year-old who attends school. After obtaining her bachelor’s degree, she had no financial support to continue with her studies. She started selling small pastries in 2003.

She wants to use this loan to strengthen her activities by buying two bags of flour, baking powder, vanilla, containers of margarine, a 25kg bag of sugar, and a can of oil.

She uses different strategies for a quick turnover: she delivers her cakes, madeleines, waffles and sweet rolls in the neighboring shops, at the market, and she also sells baked goods from her home.

In the future, she plans to open a pastry shop and hire two or three employees. She wants to use her savings to support her family and pay for her children’s tuition. She is a quiet woman with a good reputation around her neighborhood and at the church where she receives communion.
