A loan of $600 helped buying vegetables, such as cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, green beans; and fruit.

Mylene's story

A seller of fruit and vegetables, this woman is unmarried and the mother of two children.  She has been in this business for fifteen years and is located at the crossroad.  Her first loan was very beneficial for her.  Her sales figures increased by 50,000 francs a day.  She used to have sales of 70,000 francs at the time the first loan was granted.  

The following loan will be much-welcomed during this period of heavy rains, since fruit is abundant on the market and sell well.  To this end, she is going to bolster her business by buying a case of tomatoes, a case of cabbage, a case of purple eggplant, 5 bags of onions, a case of mangoes, a bunch of chives, a bunch of parsley, celery, and other fruit and vegetables in season.  

Her children are young, and she is investing more in their education while feeding them appropriately.

Her ambition is to build house for stability in her life.
