A loan of $1,000 helped to buy food staples (milk, flour, sugar, oil, etc).

Marie Clementine's story

Marie Clementine, age 53, is single with two married children. Three years ago, she opened a grocery store when she retired. She's been having a lot of success since she started in this field. In her store, one can find a bit of everything, and people comes from afar to purchase her products.

Thanks to her various loans, she was able to expand her business. She repaid her loans with great regularity, and she will use this new loan to resupply her stock of food staples, such as boxes of powdered and condensed milk, canned food, sardines, corned-beef, macedonia, sweet corn, mushrooms, sacks of flour and sugar, and cans of oil.

Very entrepreneurial, she wants to go a long way with her project: rapidly expand her store and business, until she's able to open a new store in a different neighborhood.
