Anique Patricia
Single, aged 47, she is the mother of five children whose ages vary between eight and 26.

She sold salted fish in the market for 10 years. She has already received three loans before this one which will allow her to change businesses, since she no loner has a table at the marketplace. She prefers to sell doughnuts and cakes at her home and be able to watch her children during this vacation period.

The profit from her prior business allowed her to put aside some savings and with this loan she will buy two sacks of flour, one sack of sugar, one jerrycan of oil, one sack of rice, 25 kg of powdered milk, one can of baking powder, two sacks of charcoal and some firewood.

At home she sells in the morning and during the day and in the evening she makes milk rice which is much appreciated by children. These daily sales together make between 25,000 and 40,000 francs.

If her income and her profit grows, she intends to buy an locally made stove to make more cakes to deliver. She helps her husband keep her children in school.
