A loan of $350 helped to buy two containers of Touba coffee, three cases of sugar, and also add to her chairs and benches..


Mossane Madeleine's story

The borrower is a married woman who lives with her three children and her husband. She has a little table outside her home where she serves "Touba" coffee to customers early in the morning. She has been in this business for two years and it brings her in a modest income with which to improve her family's nutrition and pay school fees for her children.

In view of her growing clientele, she is asking for a loan of 150,000 F to add to her stock and to her chairs and benches so that her customers will be more comfortable. The extra income from this investment will help her to improve living conditions for her family, especially for her children. Her ambition is to open a restaurant in the central market.
