Edith's story

This 42-year-old single woman is the mother of three children whose ages range between 4 and 12 years old. She started working in the restaurant business in 1996 as a means of financial support.

Her daily sales reach 50,000 francs with profits of 8,000 francs. She prepares promotional dishes to attract her customers who consist of people walking by, students and local residents.

With this loan, she plans to bolster her activity by increasing her stocks with one sack of rice, one 25-liter can of oil, one bag of onions, one carton of tomatoes, smoked fish, salted fish, ten liters of palm oil, white beans and peanuts.

She wants to expand her business with a modernized restaurant and boost her profits to improve her family’s living conditions and pay for her children’s tuition.
