A loan of $500 helped to buy a new fridge.


Angele's story

Angèle, age 31, lives in South Senegal. She's married and has two children. One is in sixth grade, whereas the youngest one is 11 months old and stays with his mother.

In the past, Angèle used to sell fruits. Since there was nobody selling cold drinks or ice in her neighborhood, she decided to purchase a brand new fridge to make ice and sell cold drinks.

This business is very successful since she's the only fridge owner in the neighborhood. In the future, after completing this loan, she would like to get another loan to buy a second fridge, in order to better satisfy her customers.
