A loan of $625 helped boost her business by buying children's clothes.

Adrienne's story

This lady owns a clothes shop in a large market, and in the photograph above she has placed her jewellery stand in front of her. She is a single mother of two.

She used her first loan to purchase costume jewellery by a variety of brands. Her daily turnover is around 100,000 F and she has successfully repaid her loans while putting some money aside too. With her next loan she would like to boost her business by buying more children's clothes and adding a line of wedding and baptism suits and accessories.

At 48 years old, her aim is to import salted fish and vegetable oil in order to pay for her children's education.
