Chantale's story

This client is 44 years old and single with six children. She has already received three loans from Hope, which she reimbursed successfully. She has put aside considerable savings. Her sales have gone up a lot from 25,000 to 150,000 francs per day.

On receiving her fourth loan, she is going to add to her stock of salted fish by buying 15 cartons of cod, 20 cartons of sole, 15 cartons of shark, and 15 cartons of tuna.

She is absolutely intent on attaining her objectives: opening a salted fish depot in a short time and importing cartons of fish from overseas in order to be a wholesaler.

With her profit, she continues to save and to care for her children.
