A loan helped to purchase local fruits and materials for the production process.

Fanta's story

Fanta, 50 years old, is active in the transformation of local fruits into juice and jam. Casamance is a prosperous region with a great diversity of flora. Mangoes, oranges, saba senegalensis and lemons are well represented here. Fanta takes advantage of this abundance of fruits to transform them into juice and jam and sell them.
This business is profitable and also allows to value the local fruits because for the moment there are no big breweries in place for the transformation of these fruits.

Fanta is asking for a loan of 450,000 FCFA to buy the necessary materials for the transformation and also to buy fruits in large quantities.

Thanks to her business, she can manage her needs and those of her two children. Fanta dreams of opening a medium-sized factory for the transformation of large quantities of local fruits into juice and jam.
