Félicité's story

This customer is 39 years old, married and mother to three children, two of whom are at secondary school and one at "lycée". In 2000 she began to sell chickens for boiling on a stall in the market in order to cover her expenses, and after several years she used her profits to open a shop selling meat, fish and groceries. In 2010 she got her first loan from Hope and with the various loans she has received her business has undergone a real change, her sales have increased, her capital developed significantly and she manages without any difficulty to repay her loans and save a considerable amount.

On receipt of her new loan she is going to boost her stock with cartons of chickens for boiling, chicken thighs, sausage and meat, such as oxtail, hindquarters and forequarters, as well as several cartons of sole, canned tomatoes and cartons of mixed diced vegetables.

She intends to open a cold storage room and as a good mother she looks after her family well and now works together with her husband.
