Vane's story

The client is 27 years old, married and mother of a one year old child. In 2007 she opened a food stall where she sells products such as rice, sugar, flour, pasta and soap.
Her daily sales range from 10.000 to 30.000 frs. She gets her supplies from the big stores in town and always chooses the best products for her clients.
With this loan she is going to purchase boxes of canned food, 3 boxes of oil, 50kg of perfumed rice, 3 boxes of soap, washing liquid and toilet paper.
In future she intends to grow her business, build a shop from durable materials and ultimately become a wholesaler.
She is very welcoming and is well liked by everyone in the market where she sells her goods.
