Agnes's story

This client is 48 years old, married, and has two children between the ages of 22 and 24. To overcome her family's difficulties and support her children's education, she started making and selling beignets. She runs her business at home, and her sales vary between 10,000 and 25,000 Fr per day.

After being granted her loan, she is going to strengthen her business by buying two bags of flour, one 50kg bag of sugar, two 25L cans of oil, salt, baking powder, one 50kg bag of rice, and 25kg of milk.

In the future, she wants to open a pastry shop to make various types of cakes such as brioches and fruitcakes, to deliver in bulk and open other outlets in places like schools and markets, and finally to find young people who are currently unemployed and willing to work for her.
